The hopes of a diminishing insurgency don't seem to have been realized yet as a string of car bombs across Iraq killed dozens of people today.


BAGHDAD, Iraq Apr 29, 2005 — Insurgents unleashed a series of car bombings and other attacks across Iraq on Friday, killing at least 41 people, including three U.S. soldiers, and wounding dozens of people a day after the country's first democratically elected government was approved.

Iraq's most-wanted terrorist, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, purportedly threatened more violence in an audiotape on the Internet, warning President Bush the insurgents "will not rest until we avenge our dignity."

At least 11 car bombs exploded in and around Baghdad on Friday, including four suicide attacks in quick succession in the Azamiyah section of central Baghdad.

The US death toll in the past two months has been significantly lower than previous months with only 44 so far in April and only 36 in March but that's still quite a lot more than I think many would have expected to have this far into the war.

There may be an end to the violence someday but lord knows when.

If Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is involved or behind these series of car bombings, they are not insurgent attacks. They are terrorist attacks.
