The death toll for U.S. forces in Iraq just keeps climbing. It’s now at 78 for the month.
Three U.S. Marines were killed in combat Saturday in Anbar province, the military said, making October the deadliest month for American forces in Iraq this year.
There are still 10 days left to go in October.
And so much for “stay the course”:
Shi’ite militias battled Iraqi police for a second day running and a mortar attack killed more than a dozen people on Saturday, as President Bush talked of changing tactics.
