Iraqi Civilian Death Toll Dropping

Iraqi government figures suggest that civilian casualties nationwide were down something like 36% in June, for the lowest total this year. I don’t know how reliable these numbers are, but the trend clearly seems to be positive. American military commanders said it is too soon to credit the “surge,” since the full complement of troops has only been in place for a couple of weeks and operations are ongoing. Again, though, the cause and effect relationship appears pretty clear.
