The only SURGE I can see

The trend for American soldier deaths in March in Iraq since the war started:

March 2003: 65 (the invasion)
March 2004: 53 (that was Fallujah)
March 2005: 35
March 2006: 31 (Despite the destruction of the Golden Masque in late Feb. 2006)

March 2007: 81

So far 23 Americans and 6 Brits in April 2007. As disturbing as the uptick in American deaths is, the fact that British troops are started to be killed in the rather tranquil South is a worrisome development to say the least.
