It appears the pregnant woman got out of the car and was running, screaming, towards Coalition troops at which point the car blew up, killing her, 3 soldiers, and the driver. By appearances, it's likely that she was an unwilling human shield. If so, you can't get much more despicable than using a pregnant woman as a human shield. CENTCOM briefing in about 15min may have more info.

It seems that the Iraqi forces are really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Has Saddam lost the support of the bleeding hearts yet or will it take him strapping sticks of dynamite to children?

Oh, I'm sure they'll blame this on Bush for even being there in the first place

A woman I work with got word either this morning or yesterday that her cousin was killed over there. I don't know whether he was one of these guys or not.
