BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Five U.S. soldiers were killed and six wounded on Saturday when insurgents fired two rockets from a truck into their base north of Baghdad, a U.S. military spokesman said.

The spokesman said the attack with two 57-mm rockets at the base near the town of Taji at 5 a.m. (9 p.m. EDT). Three of the wounded were listed as critical with the remaining three in serious condition, he said.

1. Hope not

That looks like the same story that was posted just a bit ago, only with a different number reported killed.

3. This really sucks...............
the blood of these fine young men and women are on the hands of the Bush cabal. Not that it matters to them, they've got their oil (temporarily at least) and they got to play war which was SOOOOO very important to them. They got the evil-doer Sadaam, you know, the one who wanted to kill his Daddy.
BinLaden on the other hand remains at large and they've created thousands more exactly like him.
How many will have to die before the American public says, enough! What the hell is wrong with the people in this country? If people paid the slightest attention to politics in the U.S. Bush would lose the election by an overwhelming majority.
As it stands, the election appears as if it's going to be another "too close to call" match-up. All because the people of this country are as intellectually challenged as our pResident.
