No need to panic, things are still pretty much stable.

"a sign that militants retain the ability to cause mass casualties"

And proof that they don't give a crap about killing kids.

"and ( a ) sign that the U.S. is doing a ( hell of a good job )"

And a sign that the rest of the world is doing diddly squat.

Get those Iraqi soldiers and police, that we've been paying SBillions to get trained, and get them on the streets doing their jobs. We can't snoop and poop with the locals like they can. They know who the bad guys are.

This was a failure of the Iraqi police department.

Bring our troops home. < :-)

"And a sign that the rest of the world is doing diddly squat."

After all those lies and all that shrieking to create this mess, no wonder you're all alone throwing the toys out of the sand-pit bud.

So why wasn't this happening before?

Madverts - We didn't create this mess, but by golly we're dealing with it.

If by "we" you mean the US, you are so wrong. The US certainly did cause this mess (with some help), and you're not dealing with it very well.

Well, it's far to late in the day to quit the Denial, so you just go right ahead and tighten the blinkers m'boy.

And by golly, that is the most deluded comment I've read on here for quite some time.

I'd say that the tragedy of this story, like pretty much every story that comes out of this nightmare, is the very clear evidence that no matter how barbaric Saddam was, we - and by "we" I mean the warmongering neocons and blinkered armchair generals who closed their ears to the worldwide protests of their electorates - had neither the right nor the competence to go stomping into a sovereign country, plunder it and impose Republican Party Democracy Lite.

More than a million lie dead because of that folly, and these fifteen souls now join them.

How Bush, Blair and the rest of the Coalition of the Willing-to-Commit-War-Crimes sleep at night I will never know. But at least they got rich out of it. Why sheep like the above poster keep bleating the prescribed Doublethink really defies explanation.

Jack - You're the one who's so wrong. These people in Iraq have been at each others throats for centuries. Look it up.

Mad - It's never too late to admit you're wrong.

007 - "And by golly, that is the most deluded comment I've read on here for quite some time"

You haven't been reading your own posts, have you?

"More than a million dead because of that folly ( the liberation of Iraq )"

By golly, that is the most deluded comment I've read on here for quite some time. And your source?

"How Bush, Blair and the rest of the Coalition of the Willing... sleep at night I will never know"

Like babies. Because they made the difficult but right decision to liberate Iraq.

Sarge - give it a try. Because you are. And by far the majority of world citizens agree.

Give it a rest, sarge. It's been a bloody disaster.

Heh, well they've nearly all disappeared so you've got to give sarge credit for being the last man standing in Denial.

I predict in a years time finding someone who voted for Bush Co, or his disateorius foreign policy blunders, will be like finding a fart in a jacuzzi.

Madverts - Give it a rest, Madverts. The surge worked - violence in Iraq overall is down - and we're now in the process of drawing down U.S. troops from Iraq.

Wottock Hunt - Still waiting for your source on the "more than a million lie dead" due to the liberation of Iraq.

"The surge worked"

No, the surge soothed the 100+ deaths a day blood-bath. It is not over as this threadn and the thread the day before shows, and, as even the article states "in a sign that militants retain the ability to cause mass casualties despite a sharp improvement in security."

"violence in Iraq overall is down"

Violence in Iraq is still at un-acceptable levels. Deny this if you wish, we're used to it.
