Violent weekend in Iraq kills over 220

By ROBERT H. REID, Associated Press Writer 33 minutes ago

Prominent Shiite and Sunni politicians called on Iraqi civilians to take up arms to defend themselves after a weekend of violence that claimed more than 220 lives, including 60 who died Sunday in a surge of bombings and shootings around Baghdad.

The calls reflect growing frustration with the inability of Iraqi security forces to prevent extremist attacks.

The weekend deaths included two American soldiers — one killed Sunday in a bombing on the western outskirts and Baghdad and another who died in combat Saturday in Salahuddin province north of the capital, the U.S. command said. Three soldiers were wounded in the Sunday blast.

Sunday's deadliest attack occurred when a bomb struck a truckload of newly recruited Iraqi soldiers on the outskirts of Baghdad, killing 15 soldiers and wounding 20, a police official at the nearest police station said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.

Also Sunday, two car bombs exploded near simultaneously in Baghdad's mostly Shiite Karradah district, killing eight people. The first detonated at 10:30 a.m., near a closed restaurant, destroying stalls and soft drink stands. Two passers-by were killed and eight wounded, a police official said.

I usually get Cyclops as a result from these quizzes. Oh well. )

No big new news to report, except that I'm going to try to complete the FAFSA tonight after work, sliding it in about two weeks before the submission deadline for the Fall semester. Yay.

What I hope to do after finishing my Bachelors' in History. Librarians make about $40,000.00 a year. Basically, I'd be set for life. And I'll only have about two-and-a-half semesters of work left on my Bachelors' after I finish the last 18 hours of my core stuff at the community college. Once I bounce back from this year's setbacks, it'll be just a matter of time.
