Three men were also killed and one was wounded when a bomb set off near the town of Balad, 70 km north of the Iraqi capital. Further north near Tikrit, another soldier died and four were wounded when their vehicle was attacked. Wednesday. The aforementioned losses have raised the death toll to 1,979 US soldiers, who have been killed in battles and accidents after the US invasion in Iraq in March 2003. Since last Saturday, when the referendum on the Iraqi Constitution was held, 12 US soldiers have been killed. In the meantime, on Thursday morning, a mortar hit an oil pipeline transferring oil to Turkey. The mortar detonated near the village of Al Bazi, 60km west of Kirkuk, and caused a fire. As per an Iraqi official, there no victims were reported, however, the transfer of black gold to Turkey was disrupted until the fire was finally put out.

Sadly reports of violence around the world (and particularly Iraq) have litle resonance any more :( . Perhaps it is simply over-saturation in the news every day, or that the news broadcasts themselves seem to feel like 'and there's been another explosion in...well you know the rest. On to the weather, and it's been a fine sunny day almost everywhere...' http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif .

It's the indifference I hate, because as soon as these stories leave the top headlines, people seem to forget about the people who are still suffering :( . And this attitude also applies to stories that are pummeled to death so that, over time, people just tune out altogether. :mad: :(

Endless. Endless and pointless. Most of them don't even know who they are fighting.

After all Iraq is not the only country suffering with violence, look at Rusia, Ucrania, Colombia.... Of course, none of them have Us troops there...

As a good neighbour[greek],I know very well how do you feel, after what they did to your beautifull and lovely country, and believe me that the majority of the world feel about the same or even harder,but...,

I think you use some hard expressions for this site,because there are very young persons in this forum, so its good to be a little more carefull! ;)
PS 1 real fanny gif,but a little hard! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

Nope!and do you Know why?
Because world mass media,swallow theire tongues now,after the murder!the big powers separate the dead body of the victim and now everything is good! :mad:
Noone talk about what happen to serbs who live in bosnia,or kossovo,whats the actions of the ucka murderers in kossovo and fyrom[yougoslavian part of macedonia],nothing just silence! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

The difference between yugoslavia and iraq is that killers were united in your case,but in iraq the food was only for a few of them! :mad:

Ofcource i dont mean by all that that Milosevits was good!in the contrary he was a bloody dictator and for sure he has to pay for all that massacre! :mad:
