Baghdad bombed as US faces prospect of long war

by Dave Clark 2 hours, 18 minutes ago

BAGHDAD (AFP) - Gunmen killed nine staff at a television studio and bomb attacks rocked Baghdad as
Pentagon officials said plans had been laid to allow US forces to stay in
Iraq until 2010 if needed.

This latest sign that the Iraqi crisis is far from over came as a gang stormed the offices of Al-Shaabiya TV and slaughtered staff on Thursday, including the general manager Abdul-Rahim al-Nasrawi, a minor Shiite politician.

"We came in this morning and we saw the massacre. All were killed. We think gunmen broke into the house and killed them," said a journalist from the private satellite network, who asked not to be identified.

......
A coordinated pair of bomb attacks killed at least five people and injured 10 more in a busy square in central Baghdad, security sources said.

2. 2010 - Can you say "occupation"?
That's an awfully long time to allow for the Iraqis to control their country. They need to get on with it, and we need to get the hell out of there and let them start living their lives again. Without American oversight!

3. and one more Dead US ttoop!! 2,750,
The military also announced the death of another US soldier, bringing the number killed since the start of the month to 41 and since the US-led invasion of March 2003 to 2,750, according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.

The US military has 142,000 soldiers deployed in Iraq, supporting the coalition government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and battling the Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias pushing the country towards civil war.

6. Put Saddam back
Throw Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, & Rice in prison, then get out your checkbooks and get ready to spend the rest of our lives paying reparations to the Iraqis.

Bingo, war's over.

8. Tell me again why pulling out would make Iraq a "hot bed" for terrorists.
How can pulling our troops out make the situation any worse than it is? We are not there stopping anything except Iraqi unification.
