A few more things about Iraq

This is the kind of stuff that the press pretty much ignores:

- Remember the threats that Saddam’s death would create even more chaos? Well, the first two weeks of January have been the less deadly to American troops since March 06 (which was the less deadly month since September 03).
- Even after Italy, Spain and many others have left there are still around 16 thousand troops from 25 countries in Iraq right now.
- The "surge" Bush talks about is not only made of American troops. More Iraqi troops will be sent to Baghdad including a 3 thousand brigade specialized in urban combat led by a Kurdish general.
