Five More Soldiers Die In Iraq

Even if the media in the US has largely forgotten it, there are still US soldiers dying in Iraq:

In Friday's bloodiest incident, four soldiers were killed by a roadside blast while on patrol northwest of the Iraqi capital, the U.S. military said in a statement. It blamed a deeply buried roadside bomb, a signature al Qaeda tactic.

Another soldier died in an explosion near his vehicle and three others were wounded near Tikrit in northern Iraq.

The Iraq Coalition Casualty Count keeps track of the dying troops that John McCain wants to keep in Iraq indefinitely.
