All the media are exclaiming with amazement that the Americans have only lost 24 soldiers in Falluja. But they fail to note that since the Falluja offensive began in Nov 8th, across Iraq their loses have been more than double that. I went to the American official bodycount website and I count about 50 American combat deaths since Nov. 8th. That's ten a day. And of course, that doesn't include many hundreds of seriously wounded American troops in the last few days. It just sickens me the way the media is eating from the hands of the American spindoctors.

I also think they are not reporting foreigners serving in the army.
