Tifton -- October is on track to be one of the deadliest months ever for American troops in Iraq. Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss says the new Iraqi government must step up to stop the violence.  

Chambliss says 13 of the 16 provinces in Iraq are relatively peaceful, with most of the violence in the Baghdad area.

The member of the Senate Intelligence Committee says the new Iraqi government must move quickly to take over security from American soldiers. "It's incumbent on you that you do a better job of protecting the citizens of Iraq, and eliminating this violence and managing the violence," Chambliss said.    

A U. S. Military Spokesman said Attacks in Baghdad rose by 22% in the first three weeks of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, with at least 70 American servicemen or women killed in October so far.
