October Not-Really-A-Surprise


October on track to be deadliest month for U.S. troops since Marines stormed Fallouja in November 2004, says Los Angeles Times. The citizenry is not pleased:

A Pew Research Center for the People & the Press poll published Oct. 5 showed that 58% of the public says the U.S. military effort in Iraq is not going well, up from 48% just a month ago and the highest disapproval rating since the war began in 2003.
