What if 3,709 Americans had died in the month of October?

CNN.com is my homepage and when I opened it up today, the dominant photo was of Iraqis standing around, as blood puddled on the street. I think it was a neccesary photograph to show, under the headline about just over 3700 Iraqis dying in October (according to the UN,) making October the deadliest month since the war began in 2003. If it were Bourban Street in New Orleans with blood on the street, it would never run. But as a lot of the country wants to ignore what's going on with the war in Iraq, I think that news providers should run more honest photographs and stories telling the real story. If you want to see the picture, here's the link: http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/11/22/iraq.report/index.html
