According to a tally by The Associated Press, at least 314 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq in 2008, down from 904 in the previous year.
And the Chicago Tribune reported today:
Chicago closed out the year with 509 homicides, an increase of about 15 percent over 2007. . .
Hope N Change, yes we can!
As a matter of fact the Green Zone in Iraq is being passed to the Iraqis but this isn't being published either because the news outlets are pulling their reporters out.
