112 Dead Iraqis In One Day Is No Big News

At least 68 Iraqis were killed in a Baquba suicide bombing, with another 42 dead in fighting in south-central Iraq. It barely made the news. This is the Iraqis' problem now, we are told.

Interestingly, CNN.com doesn't even bother trying to guess at how many of the dead were pro-US "good guys". At least, faced with sustained violence across Iraq, they are now sensibly using the word "insurgents" rather than "terrorists".

On the same day, the number of US dead in Iraq rose to a grim 911.
