It may be hard to see (click the graphic to enlarge it), but the blue line is US military deaths due to hostile action; the red line, Iraqi military deaths due to hostile action; and the green line, total civilian deaths due to hostile action, by month, for the last six months.
Notice that US fatalities have been cut by nearly two thirds, but that Iraqi military fatalities are holding steady (in the face of their increasing exposure.) Notice in particular that if we plotted these as a percentage of the forces involved, then the Iraqi force numbers would be dropping dramatically.
Data from the Brookings Institution. Hints from Instapundit and My Election Analysis.
We're winning ... in Iraq.
