Lines To Be Re-Arranged At Will

Sarah Getty

Will accept nothing less than total victory.
The bombs exploded in a crowded marketplace.
At least fifteen civilians, seven of them children. 
Her first son was killed last July, the second in April. 
Until the Iraqis establish a stable democracy.
At least seventeen civilians, five of them children.
Definite signs of progress since the surge.
Tours of duty have been extended to fifteen months.
Asked Americans for continued patience and support.
Deployments increase risk of child abuse, study shows.
At least twenty-two civilians, ten of them children.
