Those darned suicide bombers

Yesterday a suicide bomber rammed a car into a group of Iraqi police officers waiting to collect their salaries, killing 12, and a U.S. soldier was killed by a roadside bomb near Baghdad. Today a suicide bomber detonated a car packed with explosives next to a U.S. convoy on Baghdad's airport road, killing several U.S. soldiers, and a car bomb that exploded near a U.S. patrol killed four Iraqi civilians and injured 19, two of them American soldiers.

One hundred thirty-four U.S. troops have been killed so far this month in Iraq—one less than the high of 135 set in April.

And the Bush administration maintains that things are going swimmingly.
