More Insurgent Attacks

Coalition Forces have suffered some more loses. I don't know the exact number, but it took place at Karbala. These people aren't battle tested or really trained for this kind of thing. The Bulgarians, Italians or Polish. So, more and more attacks are shifting from American targets to other members of the Coalition. Over 170 Iraqi civilians were injured in these attacks, and news papers like Al-Jazeera have the nerve to call these terrorists freedom fighters against an occupying power. I guess Nazi Germany gave occupation a bad name and the world occupy seems like something evil. I'm not saying fighting for land is good, but when the Romans did it, they improved life in that area alot.

The CPA has been doing a great job thus far fighting militarily. Capturing DOZENS of terrorists on a daily bases. Sometimes, innocent people get rolled up sometimes. I am sure it upsets them, however, it is necessary. One good thing though, more and more counter-terrorists groups are being activated and taking over the job of raids and everything else. Though, our military has done a fantastic job with fighting the terrorists, despite an average of 1 death a day. The only way it will be won is by cooperation between Iraqis and CPA and IP (Iraqi Police) and Iraq's own military. I think the Coalition has set Iraq up for success. I don't any doubt in my mind that the new front on the war on terror in Iraq will be won by both CPA and the Iraqi people. We just have to be resolved and patient.

Over AFN Radio I heard a new song that just came out. The song uses the same music as the "Grandma got ran over by a Reindeer" only with the lyrics "Saddam was arrested in a rat hole. Hiding from the Soldiers in tikrit." I don't know the name of the band, but it was really funny to listen to. It probably boosted most troops moral at least alittle bit after hearing that song.
