Celebrating an anything but grim milestone in Iraq

The MSM didn’t give this story any prominence (natch), but it’s some story:

U.S. deaths in Iraq fell in October to their lowest monthly level of the war, matching the record low of 13 fatalities suffered in July. Iraqi deaths fell to their lowest monthly levels of the year. Eight of the 13 Americans died in combat, most of them in northern Iraq where al-Qaida and other Sunni insurgent groups remain active. The U.S. military suffered 25 deaths in September and 23 in August.

I think some great people are going to be coming home soon, not because we ran away, but because we stayed, fought, and won:
