Dobbs on the other Middle East crisis
In this short clip, Lou Dobbs takes a minute to 'keep things in some perspective' and reminds viewers that its actually not the 13th day of crisis in the Middle East...it's the 1,223rd day (1,224th, since this aired yesterday.)
Dobbs details the amount of American soldiers killed and injured as a result of the Iraq War, and states that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki has said that right now, 100 Iraqis are dying per day. Says Dobbs, "That means 2,400 Iraqis have been killed this month."
But don't panic yet--Al-Maliki will be meeting with President Bush today to discuss "security measures...to prevent violence escalating, even more."
