Also, the attraction points for terrorist strikes are big city's and heavely populated area's. In there police coverage is pritty good and officers

So if someone that isn't part of their presinct, is setting up road blocks in populated area's, my guess would be their cover is blown rather
The thing in iraq is that the roadblocks by the terrorists are setup in nearly unpopulated area's, on traffic routes.
For a strike in the US, doing this would have no value for the terrorists, since on US soil, they would want to have a high deathtoll, big coverage
and clear message.
In Iraq they just want to single out 1 or 2 foreign national to be held hostage.
