A US soldier was killed in action just south of the Iraqi capital today, taking the US soldier death toll to 1500. He was killed as part of a frequent flood of attacks from insurgents on US and Iraqi led forces which also saw two car bombs go off today, killing at least 5 police officers. Many others were injured in what would've been alot worse of an attack if it weren't for the people not reaching the check-point when the bomb went off.
Baghdad — The number of U.S. military deaths in Iraq rose to 1,500 after the military announced Thursday that a soldier was killed in action just south of the capital, an Associated Press count showed.

The latest fatality occurred Wednesday in Babil province, part of an area known as the “Triangle of Death” because of the frequency of insurgent attacks on U.S.- and Iraqi-led forces there.

In eastern Baghdad, two suicide car bombs exploded outside the Interior Ministry, killing at least two policemen and wounding five others, police Major Jabar Hassan said. Officials at nearby al-Kindi hospital said 15 people were injured in the blasts.

With the US death toll now well into the thousands and a much higher number for innocent Iraqi deaths many must be asking themselves if this war has been worth it. For all the attempts to bring peace to the region the bombings are happening daily and more frequent, with many attacks and bombings a day now.

It seems they will not stop until US forces and their supporters back down, or until their own people have had enough and turn on them. Either way it seems peace being possible is a very long way off if at all, if anything things have got worse.
