7 More American Troops Killed in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - The U.S. military on Sunday announced the deaths of seven more troops in Iraq, including four killed by a roadside bomb while patrolling western Baghdad - the latest American casualties in a month long security crackdown in the capital.

Though violence has receded slightly in the capital, a car bomb killed eight Iraqis in a predominantly Shiite district on Sunday, police said. The attack targeted people cooking food at open-air grills in the street, to offer as charity on a Shiite Muslim holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad’s death. Police said 28 others were wounded in the attack.

A U.S. official, meanwhile, blamed al-Qaida in Iraq for chlorine bomb attacks that struck villagers in Anbar province earlier this week but said tight Iraqi security measures prevented a higher number of casualties.

The attacks killed at least two people and sickened 350 Iraqi civilians and six U.S. troops, the U.S. military said Saturday.

7 More American Troops Killed in Iraq

God bless em each and every one, they died following their orders and serving this nation, a soldier can aspire to no higher goal or greater glory…

Now if we can get all the troops that are truly needed to extricate a WIN from this debacle, then these deaths, and the over 3,000 others will not have been in vain…

“Insurgent attempts to create high-profile carnage are being stopped at checkpoints across the country,” he said at a news conference in Baghdad. Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh appealed to Iraqis to help stop the violence. “Opportunity is still available to all honest Iraqis to rescue this country from the criminals,” he said at a joint news conference with Fox. “The chlorine attack was a kind of punishment against the people who stood against terrorist organizations.”

The above states exactly what it’s going to take to bring Iraqi freedom to fruition, the Iraqis KNOW who the bad guys are, and where they are, all it takes is for them to come forward and stand for their nation, tell us where the ‘bad guys’ are, we’ll kill em for you, but if the Iraqi people aren’t willing to stand and fight FOR their freedom, then they are deserving of that freedom, freedom is not a gift!!

All of these idiots that are screaming ‘cut and run’ have no idea as to the carnage that their strategy will incur, Iraq will be a bloodbath if we leave now and all that will emerge is another Saddam that may be even more of a dictator, and the credibility of the USA and our ability to pacify a nation the size of Texas will be ZERO…

Send in enough troops to WIN this thing and get it over with, because now it’s time to move back into Afghanistan and do that one all over again, since we didn’t get it finished the 1st time…

Thanks Mr. President…

    You know Fred, I really want to win this Iraq war.

    The sad part is Fred, we’re not going to win this.

    You have called it all along, send in enough force to win this war in a day or two.

    If not and I hate to say this but, bring the troops home.

    Enough is enough.

  3. TexasFred Says:

    Fully agreed, and as long as GWB is in the White House, we’ll never make the nationwide sweep in Iraq that must be made, all this ’surge’ has done is drive the ‘bad guys’ out of Baghdad, and even then, it’s didn’t make em all leave, as witnessed by the recent bombings…

    And God help us ALL if the Dems get in, they WILL ‘cut and run’, and that’s worse than not having enough troops, if we ‘cut and run’ as the Dems want us to do, Baghdad will be a bloodbath…
