Here's a Terrific Idea That I'm Going to StealAtlas Shrugs
(which is a blog I happened on today while surfing stories about the OSM launch) makes a terrific point about how the media constantly emphasize the number of US dead, but they don't tell us the other side of the story:Every single day, they club us like baby seals. These men and women fighting the war on radical jihad and these harpies never note the number of deaths due to islamic terror, never so much as inquire. NUMBER OF DEAD! What is that number?
WE NEED A DAILY TALLY OF MURDERS AT THE HANDS OF RADICAL JIHADI ISLAMOFASCIST TERRORISTS. NOT JUST THE NUMBER OF DEADLY HOMICIDE ATTACKS, THE NUMBER OF DEAD AND INJURED. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME DETERMINE THIS NUMBER?
That is a superb idea, so I thought I'd start surfing around looking for the answers. First I Googled "Suicide Bombing in Iraq"

Here goes. I will keep adding to this as I discover new events:3/27 and 3/28/03
