FOX NEWS and the right wing pundits can talk until they are blue in the face about how "the surge" has been such a success and the Iraq war has been "won," but the latest wave of violence in Baghdad and other cities in Iraq prove otherwise.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Four car bombs exploded across the Iraqi capital on Monday, killing 10 people and wounding dozens, police said.
A car bomb parked in a busy central Baghdad street next to a group of casual laborers queuing for work killed five people and wounded 15, police said.
Two others were parked in two popular markets. One in Husseiniya, on Baghdad's northern outskirts, killed two people and wounded eight. Another in the eastern Sadr City slum killed one person and injured at least five.
A fourth bomb in east Baghdad targeting the convoy of an Interior Ministry official killed two bystanders.
Violence has fallen dramatically in Iraq to levels not seen since late 2003, but militants still retain the ability to carry out large scale bomb attacks, especially in the capital and the northern provinces of Diyala and Nineveh.
Twenty people were killed by a car bomb in north Baghdad's district Shaab district on March 26.
