U.S. Soldier Killed in Iraq Bombing
U.S. Soldier Killed in Iraq Bombing

The Associated Press


A U.S. soldier was killed and three were wounded Sunday in an attack outside the troubled city of Fallujah, where government offices were closed in a one-day strike to protest the accidental killing of eight Iraqi police and a Jordanian guard by American troops.

The center of the city was quiet and shops were open despite the strike. People went about their daily business.

The death of the U.S. soldier outside Fallujah brought to 155 the number of American troops to die in Iraq since President Bush declared an end to major combat on May 1. During the heavy fighting before that date, 138 soldiers died.

Secretary of State Colin Powell arrived in Baghdad on Sunday for his first visit since the U.S.-led ouster of Saddam Hussein.

1. Think Bush, Think War
Think God, Think Peace

If Bush truly is a "god fearing christian", I would love to see his first days in hell.
