One paratrooper killed, three injured in Iraq ambush (Falluja)
http://www.startribune.com/stories/484/4097461.html

FALLUJAH, IRAQ -- One U.S. paratrooper was killed and three were wounded Sunday when their Humvee was destroyed by a jury- rigged bomb in a highway median.

Staff Sgt. Kyle Foster, 34, was commanding the vehicle from the right front seat. On the western edge of Fallujah, the vehicle was turning around in a gap in the four-lane highway's guard rails when the bomb exploded, about 8 a.m. It blew off the right rear quarter of the Humvee and tossed it into the air.

"All I can tell you was that it was real loud and it hurt like hell," Foster said later.

Fallujah has been boiling with anti-American sentiment since another unit fresh from Fort Bragg, N.C., killed eight Iraqi policemen early Friday. The site of that incident, near a Jordanian hospital, is little more than a mile from where the convoy was attacked Sunday.

I do believe that we have opened the gates of hell.

2. Dupe... locking
I'm pretty sure this is a dupe of an earlier thread on LBN; let's continue discussion there:

UpInArms, your link to the Star Tribune version of the story contains much, much more information than the link in the original thread; it would be helpful if you could repost this information there.

Thanks!
