"In the deadliest attack . . ."

Will we ever stop hearing these words? From the photo caption to the accompanying story (AP):

"Smoke rises from damaged vehicles after a car bombing in the Sadr City area of Baghdad in this image taken from TV Thursday Nov. 23, 2006. In the deadliest attack on a sectarian enclave since the beginning of the Iraq war, suspected Sunni-Arab militants used five car bombs and two mortar rounds on the capital's Shiite Sadr City slum to kill at least 157 people and wound 257 on Thursday, police said.

Doesn't it seem like every attack these days is "the deadliest" one?
