Another month (August) has come and gone, and Baghdad has seen another 1,500 or so of its residents killed in the ongoing violence there. This is the third straight month that more than 1,500 civilians were killed. Do the math, and you’re looking at more than fifty people per day being slaughtered by their fellow countrymen. And that’s just one city in Iraq.

But I’m sure the Bush crowd has the situation under control. Civil war? Hah! They treat it like it’s a bunch of high school kids pulling nightly pranks or something.

Wake up.
