Iraqi troops suffer fatalities nearly twice U.S. rate

Via The Washington Times:

The emerging Iraqi Security Forces have suffered nearly twice the battlefield deaths of American troops, a casualty toll that has convinced U.S. commanders they are building units willing to fight for democracy.
According to figures compiled for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the ISF has recorded 2,603 killed in action, or KIAs, as of last week. That compares with a KIA figure of 1,506 for U.S. troops since the March 2003 invasion to topple dictator Saddam Hussein.
