I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Yes Joe Lieberman - things are just peachy in Iraq

Iraqi Death Toll Rose Above 3,400 in July
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Aug. 15 — July appears to have been the deadliest month of the war for Iraqi civilians, according to figures from the Health Ministry and the Baghdad morgue, reinforcing criticism that the Baghdad security plan started in June by the new Iraqi government has failed.

An average of more than 110 Iraqis were killed each day in July, according to the figures. The total number of civilian deaths that month, 3,438, is a 9 percent increase over the tally in June and nearly double the toll in January.

The rising numbers indicate that sectarian violence is spiraling out of control and seem to bolster an assertion that many senior Iraqi officials and American military analysts have been making in recent months: that the country is already embroiled in a civil war, not just slipping toward one, and that the American-led forces are caught between Sunni Arab guerrillas and Shiite militias.
But Joe, I thought your fearless Commander in Chief said the Iraqis decided there would not be a civil war when they voted. What's it feel like to be a groupie for someone who is responsible for so many deaths?

Yes Joe, it's good the Iraqis have all the satellite dishes so they can see the carnage without leaving their homes. It's a good thing they have those cell phones so they can find out who was killed.
