Peter Byrnes catches an interesting MSNBC headline: "85 Iraqi militants killed Worst death toll for rebels in months as U.S., Iraqi forces raid suspected training camp."

I noticed the story on two different local (Dallas) news shows last night. This was the second story like this in the last week or so. What I found so interesting were the casualty totals: upwards of 80 insurgents killed and upwards of 20 captured, 8 Iraqi National troops killed or injured. (I give these numbers from memory. A quick check of the local web sites turned up nothing on the story.) With numbers like these, there's no way the insurgency will be able to last for much longer. As Rumsfeld might say, these types of numbers are just unsustainable.
