The news today will be dominated by the nomination of Sam Alito to the Supreme Court, but it’™s been a particularly bloody day in Iraq (and not just for U.S. forces):

Six American soldiers were killed Monday by roadside bombs in two separate attacks in Iraq’¦

In the deadliest attack on U.S. troops, four Task Force Baghdad soldiers died when their patrol struck the device in Youssifiyah, 12 miles south of Baghdad, the military said.

The other explosion hit a patrol near Balad, 50 miles north of Baghdad, killing two soldiers from the 29th Brigade Combat Team’¦

Iraqi President Talabani is also starting to posture for elections in December – he’™s wondering aloud why the Americans won’™t turn over more security responsibility to Iraqi forces? Kind of humorous, if you think about it – a BushCo client wondering why his guests won’™t leave. Which brings up an interesting question. If the Iraq parliament that’™s elected in December ends up demanding that the U.S. leave, will we?
