Sen. Trent Lott said Monday what a lot of congressional Republicans are apparently thinking: By this fall, "we have to see some significant changes on the ground, in Baghdad and other surrounding areas."

Twenty-seven U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq since the first day of May. At this rate, an additional 500 Americans will be dead by the first day of fall.
