Cold Calculus in Iraq

Much joy in Mudville over the news that 4000 "foreign insurgent fighters" (i.e., the bad guys) have been killed in Iraq since 2003.

Meanwhile, Iraqi civilians have been dying lately at a clip of over 3000 per month. That's a new 9/11 every 30 days. On average, it's the same number of Iraqis as died per month when Saddam was in power.

Why don't I feel better about this?
