Car bombs explode outside US bases in Iraq--police
RAMADI, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Two suicide car bombers exploded on Friday outside two U.S. bases in central Ramadi, the capital of Iraq's volatile Anbar province, Iraqi police said.

Captain Ahmed Ali said he had no word on any injuries. Ali said one bomber, driving a truck, rammed the gates of a former government building that now houses U.S. troops. A second, driving a car, attacked a U.S. base in a former football club.

The U.S. military said it was checking the report.

U.S. forces have struggled to contain violence in Ramadi and take back the city from Sunni insurgents. Most U.S. deaths in Iraq occur in Anbar province, heartland of the insurgency.

Ali said the car bombings followed clashes between U.S. forces and gunmen in central Ramadi earlier in the day.

3. Not to worry - Smirk is still sleeping OK
A winger called Steph a couple weeks ago and said that except for Baghdad, Iraq's going great :eyes:

My worst, very worst, fear is that when the Green Zone finally falls, and the last few hundred of our soldiers give their lives for this monstrosity, the American people will be so tired of the politics that it will hardly even register on the public conscience.

5. I read that part about how when he drank he couldn't sleep
this "blanker" should never get a sound sleep for the rest of his "blanking" life.

4. When does the White House give us our new
and improved daily "body count".

This must be the way the Romans felt when Nero was sawing on his fiddle.
