holy crap! the bush administration is going to revive the discredited vietnam-era practice of releasing body counts for the people u.s. forces kill.

because nothing will make iraqis stop their attacks on american forces than letting them know exactly how many iraqis we're killing. you know, it's like that annoying guy in your office. you probably want to slug him sometimes. but imagine if he periodically announced how many of your neighbors he's shot. then you'd be best friends forever!

and someone should tell the white house that the problem is not that anyone thinks "our people aren't doing anything," but rather that what they're doing is not stabilizing iraq. giving body counts will only make things worse.
