Iraqi New Year wish: "God willing, the occupation of our country will end"

In another day of bloodshed, gunmen raided a house south of Baghdad, killing five members of a Sunni Arab family. A roadside bomb in the capital killed two policemen and another bomb killed five members of the Iraqi Islamic party near their headquarters in Al-Khalis, 10 miles east of Baqouba, police said.

Police also said they found the bodies of six men who had been blindfolded, shot and dumped at a sewage plant in southeast Baghdad. A mortar round killed a policeman in Baghdad, and gunmen fatally shot the owner of a supermarket in the capital, officials said.

A U.S. soldier died Saturday from wounds inflicted by a mortar attack in Baghdad, the military said. That put the American military death toll for the year at 842 four short of 2004's record total despite political progress and dogged U.S. and Iraqi efforts to quash the insurgency. A total of 846 U.S. military personnel died in 2004 and 485 in 2003.

Some Iraqis in Baghdad said their New Year's Eve wish is that U.S. troops will pull out. "God willing, the occupation of our country will end and we will get rid of the Americans," said Noor Ali, who shopping at a Baghdad store. At a nearby restaurant, Mohammad Jassem said he hoped for "water and electricity, security and stability."

3. Just as important to many or more so - security
and economic progress as most are unemployed or risking their life in security positions.
