Guess what, terrorism is up on Iraq! Even after number "2.9" shot (9th #2 killed). Another case where reality kicks perception in the gonads -- law

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Three suicide car bombs exploded nearly simultaneously Thursday evening in a city north of Baghdad, killing 40 people and wounding many others, a hospital official said.

The attacks, which occurred about 6:45 p.m. (10:45 a.m. EDT), hit a bank, a vegetable market and another location in downtown Balad, a mostly Shiite city 50 miles north of the capital, witnesses said.

Dr. Khaled al-Azawi at Balad Hospital said 40 people died and scores were wounded, many of them seriously, with burns and mutilated limbs.

Earlier Thursday, the military said a roadside bomb killed five American soldiers during combat in the western town of Ramadi, the deadliest single attack on U.S. troops in nearly two months.
