Surge striking out.

You know what the government says about the surge's main goal being to stop the spiraling cycle of violence in Iraq? Well, it appears that it's not working so far. 

New Iraqi government figures list the number of Iraqi civilian deaths for this last month as 1,872. This is over 20% higher than the reported 1,552 Iraqi civilians who died in February and the 1,604 civilians who died in January. Not exactly the progress they were hoping to make.
