US soldiers hurt in guerrilla attack
Six US soldiers were wounded, two of them seriously, in a surprise grenade attack near Baghdad on Sunday, heightening fears that the Iraqi resistance could now predominantly take the form of sudden hit-and-run attacks.

Legacy Of Anarchy, Terrorism
My thoughts as I watched the mighty US and British military forces beat the daylights out of an Iraqi force that was battered to pulp by bombs and bombers they could not even see, but whose fury wreaked untold deaths and damage to their towns and cities.

The first anti-American demonstration

First, no critic of the invasion of Iraq was under any illusion that the US would lose. The military victory was inevitable. In any contest between a cruise missile and a leather-reinforced donkey, the smart money is always on the missile. And, in any case, the US has been assiduously disarming Iraq for 12 years.

Baghdad Seethes With Anger Toward U.S.
Baghdad was bursting with anti-American feeling Saturday as residents saw their city being stripped by its own citizens while U.S. forces stood by, rarely intervening and in some cases even motioning treasure-laden men through checkpoints.
