91 Iraqi's killed as Iraq "Stays the Course."



Associated Press WriterNABIL AL-JURANI

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Four days of sectarian slaughter killed at least 91 people by Monday in Balad, a town near a major U.S. air base an hour's drive north of the capital. Elsewhere, 60 Iraqis died in attacks and 16 tortured bodies were found.

The U.S. command said seven American troops died in fighting a day earlier. That raised the U.S. toll to 58 killed in the first two weeks of October, a pace that if continued would make the month the worst for coalition forces since 107 U.S. and 10 British soldiers died in January 2005.

Iraqi deaths also are running at a high rate. According to an Associated Press count, 708 Iraqis have been reported killed in war-related violence this month, or just over 44 a day, compared to a daily average of more than 27 since the AP began tracking deaths in April 2000.

GOI: Staying the course obviously isn't working as we aren't even on the main road anymore. We are way, way, OFF course and it's time that we adults grab the wheel of this convey on a highway to hell and change directions. We can do that by electing Democrats to the Congress this November.

Bush will go down in history as the man who started the genocide in Iraq.
