Some Things Can Be Counted, Some Can't

A headline on yahoo today: "2 U.S. Soldiers, dozens of Iraqis killed"

To be fair, the text of the article does enumerate the Iraqis killed in various recent indicents (7 here, 5 there, etc.), but still.


  • Yeah, I've noticed it in other contexts as well - like you know exactly how many Israeli soldiers have been killed in the most recent fighting with Hezbollah, but you have no clue how many Hezbollah fighters the IDF has killed.

    Same thing with Canadian vs. Taliban casualty figures.
