130 soldiers killed in Iraq – reports

The large scale battle, described as “intense”, has taken place in the town of Ar Ramadi, 20 miles west of Fallujah.
From Baghdad Burning, a blog by an Iraqi woman in Baghdad
“This is crazy. This is supposed to be punishment for violence but it’s only going to result in more bloodshed on both sidesâ€¦ people are outraged everywhere- Sunnis and Shi’a alike. This constant bombing is only going to make things worse for everyone.
Why do Americans think that people in Baghdad or the south or north arenâ€™t going care what happens in Falloojeh or Ramadi or Nassriyah or Najaf? Would Americans in New York disregard bombing and killing in California?
And as I blog this, all the mosques, Sunni and Shiâ€™a alike, are calling for Jihad…”
Dunno about you, but all of this makes me rather more certain that terrorism, bombings, etc, are coming our way. The Bushies, by their blundering, are making the world vastly more dangerous, not less.
