Meatgrinder Metrics

"Maj D notices that coalition casualties this month are way down. In fact, the casualty rate for September is less than half of what it was in August and the lowest since March - "despite" a series of offensive operations in the north and west.

I put "despite" in quotation marks because I would argue that the low casualty figures are BECAUSE of the offensive operations, not despite them...

...We need to start tracking Iraqi Defense Forces casualties right alongside U.S. and allied casualties, and use that to track the trendlines."
I can agree with that.
