A look at the Iraq numbers...

Here's a look at the Iraq numbers... the same numbers that the Democrats are holding up as evidence for the need to "redeploy" (surrender). (ripped from Gateway Pundit)
So much for Land of the Free and Home of the Brave...

Democrats and the media have set new guidelines for America.
The national sacrifice limit will now be set at 4000, max.
Anytime the US records 4000 military losses in 5 1/2 years it will be recognized under the new rules as a horrible defeat.

The US will then promptly surrender to the nearest enemy.
(In Canada the national limit is now set at 10.)

It does not matter how these numbers compare to the last time democrats surrendered:

It also does not matter how the losses compare to other US wars:

The war's monthly losses may be astronomically lower than past wars but this will not matter:


It will not matter that the battle losses are less than during the previous democratic administration when the country was not at war:

And, as the country continues to grow in population, this also will not matter.

The new rules will now go into effect.

It won't matter that the Iraqi quagmire may even reflect what some people are used to back here in the states:

Best of luck with your free society.

UK: Look Out For People Doing Things

Look Out For People Doing Things. (Hat Tip: LGF)

London - British public safety officials today increased the national alert level to “Quite Elevated Indeed” — the highest category possible — and appealed to UK citizens to “keep a sharp lookout for diverse people engaged in activities.”

“We ask the public to report any behaviors by various people that may or may not be of a suspicious nature,” said Lt. Clive Jameson of the Metropolitan Police Service. “We further ask the public to be especially vigilant for activities of broad stratas of people who may be from countries of some sort, especially those within the eastern and/or western hemisphere.”

The elevated alert levels come on the heels of a week when London and Glasgow narrowly escaped potential events that intelligence experts say may have been related to diverse groups of people doing things. Initially police had specifically asked the public for information relating to doctors driving automobiles, but that initial warning brought angry denunciations from the British Medical Association and the UK Automobile Association.

“This directive unfairly singles out and targets British medical professionals, a great many of whom are loyal and patriotic citizens,” complained Dr. Hamish Meldrum, chairman of the BMA. “The fact that some of the people involved in the recent unfortunate events may have been doctors is totally coincidental, just as if they had been accountants, plumbers, or random members of a deranged apocalyptic religious cult.”

Sir Trevor Chinn, Chairman of the UKAA, warned that the earlier directive would “spark a backlash against the British motoring community and promote a climate of fear and carophobia.”

On Tuesday, new British Prime Minister Gordon Brown met with representatives of the medical and car communities and announced that the government would henceforth prohibit occupational and transportational profiling by public officials. Brown said further government communications would prohibit the use of certain prejudicial words like “doctor,” “Vauxhall,” “podiatrist,” “propane,” “Asia,” “drive,” “ticking noises,” “panic,” and “the.” Brown also announced the formation of a blue ribbon multicultural community advisory board chaired by Dr. Mohammed Ibn-Yasin of the UK Islamic Podiatric and Car Bombing Club.
