The LAT goes above the fold with a large picture that reefers a package of stories inside the paper marking the grim milestone that was reached in Iraq yesterday when a roadside bomb pushed the American death toll in the five-year-old war to at least 4,000. Four U.S. soldiers died in that attack on a deadly day when more than 60 Iraqis were killed and the highly guarded Green Zone in Baghdad came under heavy attack. The NYT, which also fronts the story, says that the "intensity of the violence added to the sense that insurgent and sectarian attacks had been on the rise in recent weeks," while the WP is more direct and says yesterday's events "marked an escalation of violence."
And just what is there to show for it?
