30 days, 2368 attacks

Pardon my recent silence, I've been in M&uunl;nich for work. Good times, Oktoberfest!

The New York Times has been publishing a steady stream of beautiful information graphics this year, especially on the subjects of the Iraq War and the Presidential race.

Just saw their latest via Waxy: A map of Iraq showing 30 days' worth of attacks on U.S. forces. They are broken down by attack type (landmines, homemade bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, etc.), and the territory occupied by Arab Sunnis is marked. The majority of attacks appear to occur in Sunni territory. A plurality of the attacks were within or around Baghdad. This was neither the quietest, nor the most violent month in Iraq so far.
