This may come as a shock to the anti-war hippies that are hanging out in Granny Pelosi’s front yard, but according to an article posted by the Kuwait News Agency, the Baghdad security crackdown has cut the rate of killings of US soldiers by an impressive 60 percent.

17 members of the US military in Iraq have been killed since February 14 till March 13, compared to 42 from January 13 to February 13; the rate was on the decline during the first month of the security crackdown, compared to a month before.

The dramatic drop in casualties of US troops seems to be directly related to the troop level surge in terrorist hot spots like Al-Sadr City, Al-Azamiyah, and Al-Doura
