Are the Iraqis better today after the Americans had invaded their country?
Yesterday, around 40 people have been killed and more than 80 wounded across the nation. There were at least 4 car bombs and mortar attacks, most of them in Baghdad.
The worst was when a car bomb struck an Iraqi police checkpoint in al-Maalef district, a Shia area southwest of Baghdad, killing at least 12 people and wounding 38. Another targeting the Iraqi army and police killed 11 people.
Meanwhile, the USAF contributed to the carnage by bombing a house in Ibrahim Bin Ali district in north-eastern Falluja, a Sunni stronghold and scene of an earlier horrendous American attack. In the latest air strike, eight Iraqis, among them women and children belonging to one family, were killed and six others wounded on.
