Mapping Progress

There's an interesting animated map the shows the deaths of coalition forces in Iraq since the outset of the war. Belmont Club has some pretty good commentary on it. I don't think I could add any more than what he mentions. I don't think you can really make any political statements from this, but it certainly provides some perspective.

One thing I noticed (though I already assumed): the majority of deaths are suffered by the U.S. In other words, we're giving up more in this effort to help Iraqis than anyone else.
