President Bush said Tuesday that the Iraqis are refuting the pessimists
and implied that things are improving in that country.
What would America look like if it were in Iraq's current situation? The
population of the US is over 11 times that of Iraq, so a lot of

bombardment in the last week? That is a number greater than the deaths
on September 11, and if America were Iraq, it would be an ongoing,
weekly or monthly toll.
