I know how to solve this problem . . . all press should be banned from Iraq . . . except FOXNews. I guarantee you that attacks on troops and civilians will decline dramatically, while news of school construction, road building, and happy children playing in the streets of Baghdad will blanket the airwaves.

One soldier from 173rd Airborne killed, two wounded in attack in Kirkuk
ASSOCIATED PRESS

BAGHDAD, Iraq, Sept. 26 ? One soldier from the 173rd Airborne Brigade was killed and two others were wounded during an ambush in northern Iraq, the U.S. military said Friday.
The incident occurred about 11 p.m. Thursday when someone fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the soldiers' vehicle in the oil-producing city of Kirkuk, about 145 miles north of Baghdad. The names of the victims were withheld pending notification of relatives.
The death raised to 86 the number of U.S. soldiers killed by hostile fire since May 1, when President Bush declared an end to major combat in Iraq.
Two hundred Americans have died in combat here since the United States launched military operations here on March 20.

Just look at the remarkable accomplishments the George W. Bush Regime has brought upon Iraq and it's citizens. A shock-and-awe invasion without a plan for security in the aftermath. How long has it been, over 6 months now of our occupation?

What a joke. And what a horrible killing machine has resulted because of this, that Bush has unleased upon the Iraqi people that grows worse by the day.

Let the Iraqi people show their unrest with rebellion against the infidels.

I disagree. May Bush and his administration be held accountable for their actions, but I also long for the day when peace reigns again in Iraq.

US troops 'kill four Iraqi civilians'
US troops have shot dead at least four Iraqi civilians on the outskirts of Falluja, a flashpoint town west of Baghdad, hospital officials say.

Two women were among the dead, the sources said.

Eight other Iraqis were wounded, four seriously, in the shooting, which happened at 2245 (1845 GMT), the AFP news agency reported.

The US troops opened fire on two civilian cars from a checkpoint across the road, the Arab TV channel al-Jazeera reported.

Falluja, 50 kilometres (30 miles) from Baghdad, is a stronghold of supporters of ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

It has seen repeated clashes involving US troops.

Correspondents say anti-US resistance has been strong in Falluja since American troops killed 16 demonstrators there in April.

Rules of engagement

On 12 September US troops killed eight local security officers in Falluja.
The US military says its initial findings indicate that on that occasion the troops acted in line with their rules of engagement.

Iraqi policemen who survived the incident said the firing began as several Iraqi police vehicles approached a US checkpoint on the outskirts of Falluja.

The police, all members of the local US-trained force, were chasing a car carrying several wanted gunmen, they said.

The surviving policemen said they had begged the American soldiers to stop shooting, screaming in Arabic and English that they were police officers.

But the troops kept firing for between 30 minutes and an hour, they added.

Rocket attack on Baghdad hotel housing Americans, no casualties
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the landmark Rashid Hotel in central Baghdad housing many US and occupation officials, causing slight damage and no casualties, officials said.

Military spokesmen said the RPG was fired about 6:40 am (0240 GMT) Saturday in the first such coordinated attack on the facility since Baghdad fell to invading US-led forces in April.

"There was an RPG attack against the Rashid Hotel," said a spokesman, who asked not to be named.

A spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority that runs Iraq said the rocket caused superficial damage to the 14-story building, which is under tight security and ringed with sand bags and barbed wire.

He said no casualties were reported.

"This is the first coordinated, intentional, targeted attack against the Rashid Hotel," said military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Gainer. Other minor incidents occurred there but no details were available.
The attack came two days after a small bomb at a hotel housing the Baghdad offices of the US television network NBC killed a maintenance man in the first such assault aimed at foreign journalists here.

The Rashid Hotel, built in 1983, used to house most of the foreign press, diplomats and many visiting Western businessmen before US-led forces invaded the country in March to oust Saddam Hussein.

A mosaic of former US president George Bush, who led the campaign that chased Iraqi troops out of Kuwait in 1991, used to adorn the floor at the entrance, bearing the legend "The Criminal."

But since the overthrow of Saddam in April, the picture is gone and the hotel houses officials of the occupying coalition. It stands next to the Baghdad convention center, where the military press offices are located.

U.S. military says kills Iraqi who attacked patrol
TIKRIT, Iraq, Sept. 30 ? U.S. troops killed one Iraqi and wounded four others after they fired rocket propelled grenades at an American patrol, a U.S. military spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
Major Josslyn Aberle said there were no American casualties in the overnight clash near the town of Samarra, about 100 kms (60 miles) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad. The clash also led to the arrest of 11 Iraqis including the four wounded.
''After the failed ambush by the Fedayeen in which one rebel was killed by return fire, U.S. troops followed blood trails to a nearby house where the 11 were detained,'' she told reporters, referring to irregular forces set up by Iraqi president Saddam Hussein before he was ousted in April.
Aberle also said that a small bomb exploded in the bathroom of the U.S.-appointed governor's office in Saddam's home town of Tikrit, but there were no casualties.
At least 81 U.S. soldier have been killed in guerrilla attacks since May 1 when U.S. President George W. Bush declared the end of major operations in Iraq.
Aberle said attacks in northern Iraq had died down in the 24 hours ending on Tuesday morning.
''We have these peaks and valleys in violence,'' she said. ''The cycle appears to coincide with the ability of rebels to arm themselves.''
