Acting police chief killed


THE acting police chief in the northern Iraqi town of Samarra was assassinated today, a police official said.

Gunmen opened fire on Mohammed al-Badri as he travelled in his car near Samarra, the official said.

US troops said they took control of Samarra in a major offensive in October but rebels were still mounting attacks in and around the town, 100km north of Baghdad.

Maybe the coalition are so under funded they would rather set up the polling stations and then let the Iraqi population sort it out after the result.

A part of the problem is that Iraqi sercuity forces are being put into action for political reasons as a result in the long term they will fail and the Iraqi people will get the blame "for not fighting for there freedom."

Bomb Destroys U.S. Tank, Kills Two Soldiers in Iraq





BAGHDAD, Iraq - A roadside bomb destroyed a U.S. battle tank patrolling southwestern Baghdad on Monday, killing two American soldiers and wounding four others, the military said.


typical case of two sided reporting of one same story.
compare these two reports:
iraq-war.ru
reuters

you be the judge.



The U.S. Defense Department said last week that insurgents were increasing the size and power of the bombs they plant as they escalate their attacks before the Jan. 30 election. On Thursday, a roadside bomb hit a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, one of the more heavily armored U.S. military vehicles, killing all seven U.S. soldiers inside and destroying the vehicle.

looks like the blast from "the bomb" threw the tank, with his 65 tons, from the road to the river. that must have been on hell of a bomb.

Iraqi election officials quit

THE 13-strong team organising elections in Iraq's restive Anbar province said today it had quit after receiving death threats from insurgents bent on undermining the polls.

"We submitted our resignation to the governor yesterday. We have been receiving threats by letters and phone," said Abdel Aziz al-Rawi, who headed the team in the western region where violence is expected to keep many people away from the poll.

Iraq's Independent Electoral Commission has played down reports of mass resignations by electoral officials in Sunni Muslim provinces to the north and west, where insurgents bent on derailing the January 30 poll have attacked polling centres.
