    (neighborhood in Baghdad) reported 25 dead from a car bombing.  This happened last month.  Two weeks later, an Iraqi journalist investigated and found that 92 had died directly from injuries from the bombing.  Some of them die a day or two later, and they were counted.

    Not counted is the people who end up committing suicide or who die from some stress related illness much later, or even from a long term infection, or from having your home destroyed in the bombing and now having to live in a tent somewhere - or from losing your income because your business or employer's business was destroyed.

    Prostitution is becoming a viable occupation for widowed women to feed their kids.

    This is the hell we have created in Iraq.

    Kos: Bush won't cancel the next round of elections to remain in power. Me: I am not so sure.
