Not liking this

Well, here we are at the 244th day of the ninth year of the War in Afghanistan. I just took a look over at icasualites. It looks like US fatalities for the first five months of  this year are ahead of last year. In fact, with a few outliers, 2010 looks to be the worst month since the war began. When you look at the chart for ‘coalition’ fatalities, it’s even worse.
