Happy Birthday New Iraq!

On the anniversary of the U.S. handover of sovereignty in Iraq, here are the numbers to highlight the first year's progress:

From June 28, 2004 to June 26, 2005...

885 - American military personnel killed.

74 - Non U.S. coalition troop fatalities.

52 - Assassinations of Iraqi government, legal or religious officials.

2,176 - Deaths from car bombings (482 separate bombings).

5,536 - People wounded in the above stated car bombings.

16,000 - Estimated number of insurgents.

70 - Average daily attacks by insurgents.

With numbers like these... I am not looking forward to the "terrible twos".
