Media Ignores Record Progress– Finds Reason to Slam Iraq
With April’s numbers the last 7 months have seen the lowest number of US military fatalities since the war began in 2003.
But that is not how the media reported things.
You really could see this coming…
US Military fatalities remain at record low levels but that is not what the corrupt mainstream media is reporting.
This morning the headlines note that military deaths in Iraq were at 7 month high in April.
The death toll for U.S. troops in Iraq reached a seven month high in April, with the reported deaths of three more soldiers on Wednesday bringing the monthly toll to 47, the highest since last September.
U.S. and Iraqi forces have been engaged in intense fighting over the past month with Shi’ite militia fighters in Baghdad’s tightly-packed Sadr City slum.
Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who launched a crackdown against the Mehdi Army militia a month ago in the southern city of Basra, said on Wednesday the government would disarm the fighters by force if they refuse to lay down their weapons.
Two hospitals in Sadr City, the Shi’ite slum that has been the focus of fighting in the capital, said they had received the bodies of 421 Iraqis killed and treated more than 2,400 wounded there since late March. Government spokesman Tahseen al-Sheikhly said the toll there was higher, with more than 900 killed.
The number of soldiers lost in Iraq in April was less than half the number from last April.
