Rough Day In Iraq

Wednesday: 3 US Soldiers, 36 Iraqis Killed; 17 Iraqis Wounded

Updated at 6:35 p.m. EST, Dec. 26, 2007

At least 31 Iraqis were killed or found dead and 17 more were wounded in the latest round of violence. Seventeen of the dead were from a mass grave near Baquba. Meanwhile, Turkey continues to send warplanes into Iraq, but the only casualties were reported on the Turkish side of the border. Also, three U.S. soldiers were killed in separate incidents

And this at the height of the surge. The longer we delay stepping back and letting the Iraqi's solve their own problems, the harder it will be to extricate ourselves from the latest sectarian battle in a 1400 year old civil war. What a bloody pickle the neocons have got us into.
