Iraq - Thirty die in Iraqi city battle

This BBC report shows how the Iraqi security servcies are improving.

The attacks raged for "hours", an Iraqi police official said, estimating that between 400 and 500 rebels took part.

The result?

At least 21 Iraqi insurgents and seven soldiers have been killed in fighting in the city of Baquba during which at least 43 insurgents were captured.

The bad guys lost.

Note some of the tacits the terrorists used.

In one of Thursday's attacks, gunmen reportedly pulled up at a checkpoint posing as a wedding party in a convoy of vehicles, one of which was decorated with ribbons and flowers.

They then sprayed the checkpoint with bullets, a security source told AFP news agency.

Remember that next time an innocent civilian is accidentally killed.
