Sad as this story is, it is just another example of how FOX NEWS and rest of right wing media continue to lie to the American public about how well "the surge" is going in Baghdad.

2 US soldiers killed by roadside bomb in Baghdad

Roadside bombs kill at least 9 Iraqis, 2 US soldiers in Iraq

The U.S. military said two American soldiers were killed and one was wounded by a roadside bomb in Baghdad on Monday, while Iraqi officials reported that at least nine Iraqis died in a separate series of bombings.

The deadliest attack was a roadside bombing against an Iraqi police patrol vehicle in Mahaweel, about 35 miles south of Baghdad that killed four policemen and three civilian bystanders, according to Iraqi police.

The U.S. military said it could not immediately confirm that attack.

The roadside bomb that killed the two American soldiers occurred shortly before 10 a.m. in eastern Baghdad, the U.S. military said. It did not provide more details.

Iraqi police officials said the attack occurred on Palestine Street, a major thoroughfare in eastern Baghdad. Two Iraqis — a soldier and a civilian — also were killed, and seven others were wounded, according to the Iraqi officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.

The attacks came a day after a truck bomb explosion that killed 12 people and wounded 23 in Azamiyah, a former Sunni insurgent stronghold in northern Baghdad that has seen a sharp drop in violence after tribal leaders joined forces with the Americans against al-Qaida in Iraq.

Winning wars like tose in the Middle East is like trying to handcuff a snake.

Exactly. That is why saying we "won" the war with the "surge" is total lie. No armistice was signed. American troops could be in Iraq for hundreds of years and never "win" the war. There is nobody in charge of signing an armistice. They are all various insurgents groups and the remains of Al Qaeda which was never a major force in Iraq. There isn't any one group or "army" to sign an armistice. The "surge" has been a total LIE. Where are all the bodies of the insurgents if the "surge" was such a success. Even FOX NOISE doesn't report on the deaths of insurgents. That is because there are zero deaths of insurgents.

And it's "those", not "tose". Sorry, typo.
