I logged 753 Iraq Civilian and ISF Casualties for February.
First the good news...Baghdad Bodies Found dropped to less than 100 for the first time at 96 for the month, compared to 115 last month. We have to assume that this is "Normal Crime" at this point considering the size of Baghdad.
Nationwide..gun related death rose from 8.8 a day in January to 9.8 a day in February. Again...this is well within what a fair portion of the worlds Governments would consider "Normal Crime".
Now for the bad news...Badly decomposed bodies...which disappeared in their entirety in January rose to 98 in February...as the period of death is unknown..we don't know if this is a result of "Better Security" or "Worse Security".
None suicide explosive related deaths dropped from a total of 4.4/day in January to 4.2 a day in February.
Unfortuantely, Suicide bombings rose from an average number killed of 3.8 a day in January to 7.8 a day in February. Suicide Bombing has become the primary killing method.
