Troop Casualties Lowest In War

Nineteen for the month of May. Out of the over 150,000 troops currently stationed in Iraq. has been covering what has become the lack of truth in the liberal "Iraq in the new Vietnam" argument. I will admit that the similarity was there at the beginning of the war, but ever since about January of 2007, not only did Iraq start to look nothing like Vietnam, but ever since the peak in May of 2007, Iraq has followed a pretty steady downturn, and last month, the lowest casualty count for the entire campaign was recoded at just nineteen.

First, the view of each war through to September of 2007,

Then zoomed out to compare to the entire Vietnam War.
