99 U.S. Troops Died in April

The number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq in April now stands at 99.

Ten U.S. troops were killed on Saturday in combat across Iraq - including five U.S. Marines killed in pitched battles near the Syrian border - and an eleventh soldier died in a tank rollover, the military said. The deaths brought to 99 the number of U.S. troops killed in violence since April 1.

Steve Gilliard says we're losing to the guerillas. Is he right?

Make no mistake, none. This has been a month of defeats for the US. We had to stop outside Fallujah, stop outside Najaf and now face a blockade of Baghdad. We are actively losing this war and that will be clear as time goes on.
