Attacks Kill 10 U.S. Soldiers in Iraq
Today was one of the deadliest days this year for American forces in Iraq, where on average three soldiers are killed every day. So much for the administration’s claims that the presence of the U.S. military is bringing stability to the region.

BBC: Iraq attacks kill 10 US soldiers The United States military in Iraq says a marine and nine soldiers have been killed in Iraq, including four in a roadside bombing near Baghdad.
The blast struck the soldiers’ vehicle as they travelled west of the capital.
Three more were killed in the restive Diyala province, north of Baghdad. The three others died in separate attacks.
The deaths come as US-led forces in Iraq experience a surge in casualties in insurgency attacks; more than 60 US troops have been killed this month.
