2. BBC reported a couple of hours ago, US casualties for Oct. are 101
From within the BBC report on the parcel bomb blast at an Iraqi market where at leat 30 were killed comes another well hidden snippet:
Meanwhile, the death of two US troops has taken US losses in October to 101 - the highest total since January 2005.

One of the troops, a marine, was killed on Sunday in combat in Anbar province, west of Baghdad, the US military said.

The other, a military policeman, was reportedly killed in eastern Baghdad.

More than 2,800 US troops have died since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. November 2004, when 137 US soldiers were killed, remains the deadliest month so far.

Damn the chimperor.
