Iraq battered by spate of blasts
Rocket and bomb attacks across Iraq have killed dozens of Iraqi civilians, as well as policemen and US soldiers.
More than 30 Iraqis were killed and about 42 wounded by explosions in Baghdad and elsewhere.

Some seven US soldiers are reported dead - five in a rocket attack on their base in Taji, north of the capital.

2. Here's some more bad news...
Boat Attacks Iraq's Main Oil Terminal -UK Military

BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - At least one boat attacked Iraq's main oil terminal offshore in the Gulf on Saturday, a British military spokesman said.
Asked about an unconfirmed report that two boats exploded at the Basra terminal in suicide attacks, Major Ian Clooey told Reuters: "We are just getting reports that there has been an incident at the Basra offshore terminal. There are no firm details yet but we know of at least one vessel involved."

5. So, does this mean that things aren't going well? I can't tell anymore.
You know what they say, as the body count goes up, the 'things are getting better' factor goes up. Shows how well the occupation is going, how much more freedoms the Iraqis have.

I think we've all become residents in bizarro world.
