Meanwhile, in the Sovereign Nation of Iraq...

Violence continues to be perpetrated by and on the "guest" military who seem to be living and buzzing about all over the place, despite not "occupying" it. Three more Marines were killed today, and a car bomb in Khalis killed 13 people attending the wake of two people killed there yesterday.

And yesterday,
U.S.-led coalition forces, who have been targeting al-Zarqawi, launched an air strike in the restive city of Fallujah on a suspected safe house used by his followers. The attack reportedly killed 15 people, a dozen of them children, witnesses said.
Yasser Abed, 17, said 15 members of his family, including 12 children, were killed in the air strike. Abed, his father and a brother were out of the house at the time of the attack, he said. Hospital officials said at least 10 people were killed. Previous U.S. air strikes in Fallujah have killed dozens.
