US Soldiers injured in Baghdad,,2-10-1462_14...

Baghdad - Five US soldiers were injured, one seriously, when their convoy entered the hotspot town of Fallujah west of Baghdad on Sunday and was attacked with an "improvised explosive device" (IED), witnesses said.

A helicopter attempted to land to medivac the wounded to a nearby hospital after the blast, but was turned back after it was targetted by a rocket, one witness said.

An AFP correspondent reported seeing one of the wounded soldiers carried out of the area by other troops after the attack which the witnesses said occurred at 06:15 at the entrance to Fallujah.


A group of masked men carrying RPGs and describing themselves as anti-US resistance forces spoke briefly to reporters, reciting verses from the Koran before issuing a chilling warning.

"We will conduct an operation tonight to avenge the martyrs," one said.


Time to announce Operation Ignominious Defeat.

1. Bush will allow a lot more of our troops to die before that happens
If he keeps the economy depressed, he will have a never-ending number of enlistees ready to pick up a gun.

I've been trying to decide on what basis he'll call a national emergency to cancel the 2004 elections.
