“BAGHDAD (AFP) — US forces recorded their lowest monthly death toll in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, officials said on Sunday as Baghdad also reported a big drop in Iraqi deaths and Australia prepared to withdraw its troops.
Nineteen American soldiers were killed in May, the lowest death toll since the US-led invasion, the US military said as the government reported an almost 50 percent reduction in the number of Iraqi fatalities.”
I wonder how many people heard about this. There was no mention about this at all in Brazil’s nightly news and main newspapers that I recall. My wife said she had only heard about Australian troops leaving (which came with the subliminal message that this was bad news, of course).
I think victory in Iraq is directly proportional to the lack of news about it.
