COIN 101

An Associated Press tally finds 304 US soldiers killed in Afghanistan in 2009, doubled from 151 in 2008. Will 2010 bring 600 deaths? 300? 100? It doesn't seem possible that next year will be better than this year for American troops.

Britain also took 107 deaths in the chin. Another two years like that and Gordon Brown's successor will be bringing the troops home.
