Another Helicopter Shot Down In Iraq

The U.S. military confirms that the helicopter that had a "hard landing" north of Baghdad today was actually shot down by small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.

That makes at least 7 American helicopter that have crashed or been brought down by hostile fire in the last month. In all, 28 Americans have died in the incidents.

Also the NY Times reports that insurgents have pulled three separate chemical bomb attacks in the last month in Iraq. While the attacks were poorly executed and not as deadly as they could have been, they leave open the possibility for some REALLY horrific attacks in the near future.

Surge or no surge, which way does the trend line on the war look like it's going?
