 Bomb at Italian base in Iraq kills at least 25

Insurgents bombed an Italian military police headquarters in the southern town of Nasiriyah Wednesday, killing at least 25 people. Italian officials said they feared the death toll it would rise. At least 60 people suffered injuries. But it was already the deadliest single assault in an exceptionally deadly month.

The attacks are increasing in intensity as well as frequency, while the bellicose dimbulbs in DC look for a quick solution no doubt getting twitchy about Dubya’s decreasing chances for reelection and their own jobs.
