Another day of violence in Iraq has claimed up to 18 lives in three separate incidents.
As many as six people were killed when a residential area of Baghdad came under rocket or mortar fire twice late on Saturday.

Earlier, a suspected suicide attack on a police station in the northern city of Mosul killed at least nine people.

And three American soldiers were killed when a roadside bomb blew up between the towns of Tikrit and Kirkuk.


The attacks come as Iraqis are preparing to celebrate Eid al-Adha, the Muslim Feast of the Sacrifice.

The US-led coalition in Iraq has said it is braced for a possible upsurge in violence during this period
Maybe it's time to stop the "Hooooorah we 're winning Bullsh*t" and start issuing more "It's going to be a long tough fight, but we must finish this" ,instead of trying to blow warm air up the collective arrses of Worldpop.

Why not hand the whole mess over to the UN and get home asap ? Oh yes, the US wants the oil - Sorry I forgot.

The UN will screw it up, probably better to hand over security to other leading arab states, they know how to deal with their own, especially when it comes to security :!:

Saddam must be sitting in his cell, chuckling to himself "You see what it takes to control this country?"

I'm still trying to find out what our stated military objectives in Iraq are. With Sadman out of the way and WMD much less of an issue surely there's not much left?

Get the fcuk out and leave them to it.

Could be a staging area for the next military victory (either east or west)on the Bush/Blair election campaign.
