June 2005 Iraq casualties

Avg. daily military fatality rate (Americans and others): 2.77. May was 2.84, April was 1.73, and June 2004 was 1.67. Overall average to date is 2.31.

Iraqi monthly military/police fatalities: 296. May was 270, April 199, no stats for June 2004 (January 2005 is when the stats started: 109).

Comments: I don't see an overall trend in the US fatality rate, looking back 18 months. Sometimes it's significantly better, sometimes significantly worse. As I said last month, the Iraqi military/police fatality rate doesn't seem sustainable over the long term, even assuming that it gets no worse.

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