May 2005 Iraq casualties snapshot

Avg. daily military fatality rate (Americans and others): 2.84. April was 1.73, March 1.29, May 2004 was 2.71.

Iraqi monthly miliary/police fatalities: 270, April 199, March 200, no stats for May 2004.

Comments: the Iraqi fatality rate doesn't seem sustainable, if you add seriously wounded and assume only a portion of the 100,000 Iraqis that Bush keeps talking about are actually deployable. A job that has a 3% annual death rate?

I'll try to remember to do this each month.
