    Officials: Explosions Kill 4 in Northwest Iraq

    "A trio of bombs exploded on Sunday in the northwest Iraqi city of Mosul, killing four security officers and wounding seven other people, officials said.

    The violence began with a car bomb that killed two soldiers and wounded another five, police officials said. A second bomb, which was placed under a vehicle, exploded, wounding two people. Later, a roadside bomb killed a police officer and a soldier.

    A health official confirmed the casualties in an industrial area of the city, 360 kilometers (225 miles) northwest of Baghdad.

    The police and health officials spoke anonymously because they weren't allowed to talk to media.

    A surge in violence is expected in Iraq in the lead up to provincial elections on April 20."

    Asides from the mass killings, I'd say ol' Saddam was a pretty good fellow.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    During most of his mass killings we supported him. But kicking US and British oil companies out of Iraq and threatening to switch to the euro we could not stand for.

    You're right, removing our oil companies was just plain sadistic.

    We didn't remove them, Iraq kicked them out when they nationalized their oil. But thanks to our invasion and occupation, US and British oil companies are back in Iraq.

    Mission Accomplished!

    yeah, being under the iron fist of a dictator makes for a very "stable" environment

    The government we installed is just as corrupt as the last one, and the country is less stable, just ask the Iraqis.

    I guess you were surprised when the Iraqis fought our occupation for almost 10 years rather than throwing flowers at us!

    um yeah, we didn't "install" anything. we allowed them to decide for themselves. not our fault they voted for corrupt politicians (as if there were any other kind)

    just saying..."stability" isn't the be all end all. I'm sure all those Iraqis that were tortured and murdered in Saddam's "perfume palace" and then dumped in "Lost Lake" were really impressed by the stability of Saddam's govt
