War News for August 16, 2003 Bring ‘em on: Two US convoys attacked, several US soldiers reported wounded. Bring ‘em on: US patrol ambushed near Baquba; one US vehicle destroyed, nor reports of casualties. Bring ‘em on: Turkish embassy in Baghdad attacked. 10,000 Iraqis demonstrate against US in Sadr City. Muslim clerics demand US end occupation. Holy Man Gary Bauer clamors for jihad. Portrait on an insurgent. Inside the Iraqi resistance. US still blames Saddam Hussein for Iraqi revolt. And Lieutenant AWOL still blames Clinton for the recession, deficit, power failures and the pretzel that whipped his ass. More pipeline sabotage. Wanting it both ways: Bush administration seeks UN recognition of Iraqi provisional government and resists giving UN security role. BOHICA! Republicans try to dodge flap over reductions in combat pay. Notice that the DoD spokesman says they'll look to offset reductions by using other incentive pays, not that they'll actually restore the cut in imminent danger pay or family separation pay. And why are the troops getting "imminent danger pay" and not "hostile fire pay?"
