Wednesday, April 07, 2004And Down the Hole We Go
A dozen or so US soliders were killed in heavy fighting today... God knows how many Iraqis were killed. Reports suggest that the fighting was organized and appeared to involve a distinct military strategy. The spread of fighting to Ramadi means that American soldiers are now facing violent uprisings in at least seven Iraqi cities: Falluja, Najaf, Karbala, Nasiriyah, Kut, Baghdad, and now Ramadi. The country's exploding.
I don't know what else to say. Perhaps those who could not have peace in life will be able to find peace in death.
PS: We are not the only ones suffering.
Sixteen Iraqis died in battles with US Marines in Fallujah, and at least 26 more -- many of them women and children -- were killed in a late-night rocket strike by the US military, hospital officials said.
