Meanwhile . . . "over there" IV

Car bomb kills 2 U.S. soldiers in Iraq; other bombs kill 20

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Bombings across Iraq on Thursday claimed the lives of at least 22 people, including U.S. soldiers, tribal leaders, and an Iraqi government official, according to Iraqi officials. The deadliest strike was in the city of Falluja, west of Baghdad, when two suicide bombers simultaneously rammed oil tankers into two Iraqi police posts, damaging a nearby school and killing at least 15 people, an Interior Ministry official said.

The twin strikes destroyed six houses and a police station, and left at least 147 other people wounded, he said. Part of the school collapsed from the blast, leaving many trapped in the rubble.

Both civilians and police were among the casualties from the strike, which happened shortly after noon. The official initially said schoolchildren were among the casualties, but it was not clear if they were among those killed or wounded.
More tragedy for the Iraqi people. We cannot possibly get out of this disaster soon enough. Every day I wake up and realize W is still our President, I want to throw up.

Thank you, President Bush. Thank you for showing me the true meaning of tragitastrobacle, in all its bloody gore and entrails.
