Another attack, another raid

BAGHDAD - Dozens of masked fighters launched a coordinated attack on police in Samarra<, an official said Friday, entering the city at dusk in 20 machine-gun mounted pickups then splitting up to assault checkpoints and a headquarters building.Iraq insurgents were arrested, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.Some 60 masked attackers drove into the city at dusk, then split into small groups and assaulted four police checkpoints and the headquarters, the police official said.Lt. Col. Michael Donnelly, a U.S. military spokesman in northern Iraq, said he had no details on the report by Samarra police, but that an American patrol got into a firefight with gunmen in the city on Friday.

Two insurgents were killed and another captured, Donnelly said. There were no immediate reports of U.S. casualties.

The U.S. command reported that an American soldier was killed in an explosion Friday in Salahuddin province, which includes Samarra, and four soldiers were wounded. It was unclear whether the explosion was linked to the firefight reported by Donnelly.

In the capital, an American Humvee patrol came under fire from rooftops in the primarily Shiite neighborhood of Shula and called in helicopter support; eight insurgents were killed in the ensuing clash, said U.S. Army spokesman Lt. Col. Scott Bleichwehl.In Najaf, Nassar al-Rubaie, head of a 30-member bloc in parliament loyal to anti-U.S. Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, said 21 civilians were killed, a "large number" wounded, and several houses destroyed in the Shula fighting.He blamed Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, saying the Shiite-led government "is weak and can do nothing in the face of the occupation, Shula is now regarded as a front line. Al-Sadr's main office in Baghdad reported 14 civilians killed and 20 injured, and an official at Noor Hospital in Shula said bodies of 13 people were brought to the facility along with seven badly wounded people. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of fears for his safety, and his claim could not be independently confirmed.Bleichwehl, however, said all those killed were positively identified as enemy fighters, and that there were no civilian casualties.In southern Iraq, authorities in Muthanna province imposed a province-wide curfew after an attack on al-Sadr's offices in a town near the provincial capital Samawah about 230 miles southeast of Baghdad. Two of al-Sadr's offices were demolished after being hit with rocket-propelled grenade fire, police said. The buildings were empty at the time and no casualties were reported, but authorities feared the cleric's followers might seek retribution."Because of the fear that reprisals might take place during Friday prayers, a decision was taken to impose the curfew across the province," local politician Ahmed Marzuq said. Al-Sadr has offices in virtually every major town in southern Iraq, as well as many in northern areas with sizable Shiite communities. Some include free health clinics and most have a prayer area or are linked to a mosque.Elsewhere, the U.S. command said Friday that Iraqi troops and U.S. Special Forces raided a home in the Hit area and seized an al-Qaida suspect believed to have shot down an American helicopter in 2004.The forces detained the suspect and a "second person of interest" in the Wednesday raid, and found an assault rifle as well as identification cards and passports. In addition to the helicopter attack, the primary suspect — whose name was not released — is believed to be involved in roadside bombing and sniper attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces in the region, 85 miles west of Baghdad, the military said in a statement. U.S. forces also reported killing seven insurgents and detaining 12 others in operations to disrupt al-Qaida in central and northern Iraq. In the biggest raid, troops returned to an area east of Tarmiyah, 30 miles north of Baghdad, where they killed 13 terrorist suspects and captured 12 others a week earlier, based on information from local Iraqis, said spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver. "With the help of the Iraqi community, we basically crippled this cell," he said.

Spread the word on your site! Buy a copy! Support our troops!

A U.S. soldier recommended for the medal of honor has written a book at the war in Iraq. It is a first-hand account of the 2004 Battle of Fallujah. The American soldiers eventually won the block-by-block battle, but the cost was great. David Bellavia conveys
the intense experiences of combat, and presents well-drawn portraits of his fellow soldiers, as he captures their heroism and sacrifice.

I have read this book and it's even better than Blackhawk Down!

My name is Irina, and I am helping my friend with the website

The site just went up, honoring everyone in the US military all around the world. Dog tags are sold on it, of which 15% of all proceeds goes to charity (Soldier’s Angels) which helps injured soldiers or families of those that lost their lives in the military. Soldier's Angels will be issuing a national press release for AFaithfulSoldier, so that will be great, but we need all the help we can get! The tags could be personalized with either your name or someone you know in the military and would make great gifts with great respect. I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m hoping you can perhaps add a link or make a minor mention somewhere in your blog about my friend’s site. I think it’s a great idea and trying to help where I can. Also, she’s working on getting a links page up on her site, so if you would link to, she will add your link once that page is up. As you know, reciprocal linking benefits both of us by raising our search rankings and generating more traffic to both of our sites.

It would be greatly appreciated, and if not, I can understand ;)

If you do decide to post the link, let me know the URL of the page that it's on, and I will make sure that your link gets posted on her site once the page is up!

Please email me @ afaithfulsoldier(at)

Thank you very much,

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
