Wrong war, wrong place, wrong bat-time

When news broke that seven Marines had been killed outside Fallujah on Monday, it was generally reported as a renewal of violence against the US after a few months of relative calm.

But as The Washington Post reminds us, "About 1,100 U.S. soldiers and Marines were wounded in Iraq during August, by far the highest combat injury toll for any month since the war began."

Of course we could hardly be expected to notice, what with all the action over in Vietnam.
