DOZENS KILLED IN FRESH BAGHDAD ATTACKS

***I have no idea what is wrong with some of the people out there that gave Bush a 5 point boost in his polls regarding the job he's doing in Iraq! Just because he does a PR tour, they think that things are getting better in Iraq. Well, I'm here to tell you that, THEY AREN'T! Things are only getting worse! Bush has done nothing but lie to us since he has gotten into office, so why would he start telling you the truth now? These people that gave Bush the boost need to get their heads examined and start reading the news, but not only from 1 source.



More than 30 killed in fresh strikes; U.S. searches for 2 missing soldiers

Baghdad, Iraq---Bomb and mortar attacks killed at least 31 people in and near Baghdad on Saturday in violence that showed no sign of easing despite a security crackdown in the capital.

U.S. forces were searching for 2 American soldiers who went missing after an attack on Friday in which one U.S. soldier was killed in the Sunni insurgent stronghold of Youssifiyah, south of Baghdad.

***Now they have American P.O.W.'s, which Bush and Company likes to call "ransom victims." They had better hope that our soldiers aren't being treated the same way that we treated the prisoners in Abu Ghraib!

"After hearing small arms fire and explosions in the vicinity of the checkpoint, a quick reaction force responded to the scene. Coalition forces have initiated a search operation to locate and determine the status of the soldiers," it said.

More than 2,500 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq since the U.S. led invasion in 2003.

***And what's up with that smart-a-- remark that Tony Snow made about our troops. "THAT'S ONLY A NUMBER!" Only a number? Would he consider one of his own children "only a number" if they were KIA in Iraq? No, I don't think so. He would have the same response that I along with many, many others had. This was the life of a human being that had a lot of other lives connected to it. I wonder when the White House is going to join the human race?

Saturday's violence followed a vow by al-Qaida in Iraq's new leader to avenge the deathof his predecessor Abue Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike last week.

Now they're calling the insurgency in Iraq al-Qaeda. Your crazy if you beleive this. And the only reason that Zarqawi is dead, is because Bush wanted to go to Iraq to put on his horse and pony show. He was petrified of Zarqawi even though he was exaggerated by the Pentagon. Why couldn't they do this without Bush planning a visit? I wonder what the 5% has to say about that?

In the deadliest attack, a car bomb targeting Iraqi army and police killed 11 people.

Reuters television footage showed the blackened remains of at least 6 burned-out cars. A charred body was taken on stretcher to an ambulance. A man with blood on his face stood nearby looking stunned and smoking a cigarette.

New Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who is under pressure to rein in violence that has killed tens of thousands of Iraqis, on Wednesday launched a much-trumpeted sweep with 50,000 Iraqi forces back by 7,000 troops to pile pressure on al-Qaida in Iraq.

***All of this is being done only because Bush's ratings are so low. Why couldn't this have been done before? He always does this when he is low in the polls. That 5% must be the weakest minded people alive!

But the operation, mounted one day after President Bush made a surprise visit to Baghdad to bolster al-Maliki's month-old government, has failed to stop attacks.

In More violence, a bomb killed six people and wounded 11 in a crowded market in central Baghdad and mortar rounds killed two people and wounded 14 in another market in the Shiite district of Kadhimiya.


MARKET ATTACKS

Attacks on crowded markets are a common tactic used by al-Qaida in Iraq as part of what U.S. officials say is a campaign to ignite a sectarian civil war between majority Shiites and Sunni Arabs.

In the town of Mahmudiya just south of the capital, a car bomb targeting an Iraqi army checkpoint killed 7 people.

Four days into the crackdown, the Interior Ministry has not announced any arrests or other results.

As the wounded from Saturday's blasts were being treated, state television broadcast footage of Iraqo soldiers marching to the sound of martial music, part of a government campaign to bolster "the image" of its security forces.

The U.S. military has said it expects the new leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, who it identified as Abu Ayyub al-Masri, to use the same tactics as al-Zarqawi, a Sunni Arab militant who had concentrated mass attacks against Shiites.

*Yet another person for the Pentagon to exaggerate.

On Friday, a suicide bomber killed at least 10 people in a Shiite mosque in Baghdad. An Iraqi militant body linked with al-Qaida in Iraq pledged on Friday to continue a holy war against U.S. forces until "doomsday."
