How many Yazidis are still in Iraq and alive?
How many Christians are still in Iraq and alive?
How many Sunnis are still in Iraq and alive?

Bush, the Republicans, and the Complicit Media would like you to believe that it is the surge that is causing the violence to drop in Iraq, there might be another reason though.

You can strike a comparison between Iraq and Colombia. Colombia has a little problem with it's Trade Unionists, they keep turning up dead, fingernails pulled off, shot in the head, that kind of dead. Now, Colombia wants a free trade deal with the US, but Democrats and the Labor Unions here and there oppose this deal, citing the murders. While, Colombia is still number 1 with Trade Unionists getting killed, but there are less deaths. But, don't think conditions are improving, nobody who opposes this deal buys these numbers. The only reason why the deaths are going down is because there are less Trade Unionists to kill.

Is a similar thing happening in Iraq? Are the numbers only going down because the population is going down even faster?
