THE TRAGIC ROUTINE IN IRAQUI WAR...


BAGHDAD, June 23Eight American servicemen were reported to have died in Iraq on Saturday, bringing the four-day death toll to at least 23 as insurgents continued to use huge roadside bombs to rip through combat vehicles.
The deadliest attack on Saturday killed four American soldiers in combat northwest of Baghdad. Insurgents detonated a roadside bomb near the soldiers’ vehicle. An Iraqi working as an interpreter for the Americans was wounded.
Though the military did not specify the location of the attack, American forces have been stepping up patrols and other operations in the area immediately northwest of here as part of new offensives to try to bring some control to the insurgent-dominated belts around the capital. The area northwest of Baghdad had been left largely untouched, American officials say, allowing Sunni militants to use the sparsely populated area as a sanctuary.
Another insurgent attack — a coordinated strike using rifles and at least one bomb — led to the deaths of two American soldiers in eastern Baghdad early on Saturday. The soldiers first were struck by the explosion of a roadside bomb, and then they were fired upon, the military said. Three other soldiers were wounded in the attack.
Another American soldier died from a “nonbattle-related cause” on Saturday. No other details were provided by the military, which said the death was under investigation. An American airman also was killed in Tikrit when a bomb exploded near his vehicle.
EVERY DAY WE CAN READS THESE STORIES THAT IF GO BECOMING AN IMPLACABLE ROUTINE FOR THE AMERICAN MILITARY TROOPS IN AN UNKNOWN COUNTRY, WITH WILD RULES OF COMBAT , AND CAUSING TO MANY FAMILIES Of THIS GREAT COUNTRY, MUCH ANGUISH WITH THE DECEASED AND ALSO WITH THE HANDICAPED THAT ARE FOREVER MARKED IN ITS LIVES AND EVERYTHING FOR WHAT!?
