I thought he was the 88th British servicemen to die in Iraq
Originally posted by MickeyDee
One soldier has died and another four injured when their convoy was attacked in the southeastern Iraqi town of Amarah. He was the 50th British serviceman to die in Iraq since the US-lad invasion in March 2003.
The troops were on their way to a planned meeting with Iraqi security forces when they were attacked.
The attack came as Iraq's new government launched its biggest crackdown yet on insurgents in Baghdad.
It follows a wave of attacks by guerillas in the past month in which more than 600 people have been killed.

How many more people must die before the insurgents in Iraq realise they are not going to win?
They are just holding their own country back and the longer they carry on attacking the coalition forces the longer we will stay in Iraq!
The insurgents dont even deserve to be alive and the major offenxive that has begun against them can only be a good thing!
