New and different attacks in Iraq

From the Boston Globe comes this story of a different tactic at work: bq. Suicide attackers detonated explosive-laden boats near oil facilities in the Persian Gulf, killing two U.S. Navy sailors in a new tactic against Iraq's vital oil industry. The explosions caused no damage to the terminals but were the first known maritime attack on Iraqi oil facilities since the invasion. They are getting desperate -- these again are the same people who cheared Saddam and now that they see the beginnings of a new government starting to take hold, they are pulling out all the stops to get the coalition to leave so they can return to their comfortable corrupt government. Err... Sorry guys. Not gonna happen... Posted by DaveH at April 24, 2004 10:04 PM
