McWetboy posts a link in his Map Room to a Flash-powered representation of Iraq war casualties among coalition forces that has to be seen to be believed.
Sacrifice? Yeah. Blood sacrifice.
Anyway, “...the animation runs at ten frames per second — one frame for each day — and a single black dot indicates the geographic location that a coalition military fatality occurred. Each dot starts as a white flash and a larger red dot which fades to black over the span of 30 frames/days, and then slowly fades to gray over the span of the entire war...”.
