A suicide car bomb has exploded in an Army recruiting center in Baghdad, killing 47 Iraqi recruits and seriously wounding 55. The car was driven by a lone male, who died as a result of the attack.

The car was driven into the recruiting center, where it detonated. Witnesses report seeing the white car drive near where about 400 people stood in line.

"A vehicle-borne improvised explosive device exploded near the Iraqi Army headquarters recruiting station this morning at about 7:40am local time," said Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Baggio.

The bombing comes a day after a car bomb exploded at a police station in Iskandariya, killing 55 people.

The bomb was planted by america operatives to try to scare public iraqis into submission by fearing the terrorists more than the america soldiers..the plan has yet to reviel whether or not it will far my source said the plan may result in concentration camps for iraqis who do not go along with the american plans

Man if that's the best they can get away with, we should be counted as lucky. We don't give the Iraqi people enough credit. When the nazis were bombing britian, the Brittish didn't get all scared and surrender, they stood tough. In the end, it turned out that the bombing actually strengthened their resolve to win. I don't think that the Iraqi people will just lay over from even a thousand car bombs, it's almost a way of life there. Have the people in Israel backed down from all the suicide and car bombings every other week for the past 3 decades!?! NO.
