Iraq “Completely Out Of Hand”

As the conflict in Iraq disintegrates from an insurgency into all out civil war, the US military reports the security situation on the ground has become increasingly violent. A recent UN report shows Iraq is now deadlier than ever, with 6599 Iraqis dying violently in the last two months alone, an increase of more than 700 from the previous two months.

Gen. George Casey acknowledged Thursday that security in Iraq is becoming more difficult, saying Iraqi leaders must agree on key issues if progress is to be made.
“We’re starting to see this conflict here transition from an insurgency against us to a struggle for the division of political and economic power among the Iraqis,” Casey told the Associated Press.

Meanwhile torture in Iraq is "completely out of hand" and could now be worse than under the tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein, a United Nations human rights investigator reported last night. This bodes poorly for the entire region, as many Iraqis are beginning to lose hope. Over a quarter of a million refugees have already fled the country.

In Baghdad, 38 more bodies have been recovered, after being dragged out of their homes and murdered by death squads roaming the streets. Attacks on coalition soldiers are also on the rise. According to numbers posted at, the combined losses of the U.S. military has surpassed 3,000 as a result of operations related to the current war on terror, a war that has so far proven to be the bane of the Bush administration.
