The latest in a number of serious incidents in the increasingly unstable Iraq, two US soldiers were killed during “operations” in central Iraq. The military provided no additional details so far as to how they were killed.
This wasn’t the only incident, however, as a number of bombings across Baghdad targeted security forces, leaving at least nine police killed. A total of 20 were reported killed in the Baghdad strikes and elsewhere nearby
The attack came just days after a coordinated bombing targeted the police headquarters in the northern city of Kirkuk. The attack killed at least 30 people, including a large number of police, and wounded 90 others.
The recent incidents seem to be more direct in concentrating on security forces rather than simply random strikes on Shi’ites aimed at stirring up sectarian anger. Whether this is a coincidence or points to a shift in insurgent policy remains to be seen.

At least they weren't combat troops or in combat. You know, because all the combat troops have been pulled out and everything. The only question now is how badly this will be ignored by the nightly news.
Great to see that "democracy" at work, that mission accomplished and all that.
But the wars over eh? We should of been out there busting heads, and hunting these b@stards down instead Petraeus had us building a house for orphans, running PT in un normal temps and having" mandatory fun days" Big Fn Joke
