The strong American military counterattack against the insurgents in November, plus the capture of Saddam Hussein, have contributed to lowering the number of Americans soldiers dying each day to just l.l (or ll soldiers every ten days.) While this is significant progress, it means that, if continued, over 400 American soldiers now alive will die in Iraq by the end of 2004. (By way of contrast, no other post-Vietnam military conflict has had as many as 300 deaths of American soldiers.) We continue to need a better diplomatic strategy, a better military strategy, and, to best limit the number of American deaths, a better exit strategy.
