Just get out

So how's the "surge" going? AP:
U.S. warplanes attacked suspected militiamen wielding shoulder-fired rockets Saturday in the second day of fierce fighting between U.S. and Iraqi forces and Shiite gunmen south of Baghdad, U.S. and Iraqi officials and witnesses said.

At least one civilian was killed and five were seriously wounded when an American tank fired on their house in Diwaniyah, 80 miles south of Baghdad, Iraqi police and hospital officials said. The victims had to be pulled from the rubble of their home, and evacuated to Diwaniyah hospital, police said.

The U.S. military had no immediate comment Saturday on any casualties among civilians or soldiers in Diwaniyah.

In Baghdad, two U.S. soldiers were killed and seven were wounded by two separate roadside bombs in Baghdad Friday.

One U.S. soldier was killed and four were wounded in an attack with an armor-piercing explosively formed projectile, or EFP, the military said in a statement.
Chris Floyd has made abundantly clear why Bush and Cheney want to keep this mayhem going indefinitely. But why anyone who buys more petroleum products than he sells, or who has a milligram* of humanity, would support one more nanosecond* of this carnage is beyond my powers of understanding.
