    Iraqi Killed, Two U.S. Soldiers Wounded in Attack Sun June 29, 2003 04:29 AM ET Two U.S. military police soldiers were wounded in Baghdad on Sunday when an explosion targeted a U.S. convoy, the latest in a series of hit-and-run strikes on occupation forces. Hours earlier in a separate incident Saturday night, attackers lobbed two grenades near U.S. soldiers guarding the Iraqi National Museum, the soldiers said. The Americans escaped harm but a neighboring store was damaged. There were no casualties. "We do not know if it intended to hit our position or to hit that little store that is...

    Douglas Anthony Cooper of Montreal chides me for a throwaway line in last week's column about the antiwar crowd's sudden interest in property crime: "Steal the photocopier from Baghdad's Ministry of Genital Clamping and they're pining for the smack of firm government." "Some matters reside beyond the domain of comedy," writes Cooper. "The rape of the National Museum of Iraq and the torching of the National Library will be lamented by historians for centuries." He concludes, "A man of Steyn's sensibilities beneath the sneer I detect a partisan of Western civilization ought to find this an occasion of immense sorrow."...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. soldiers shot back at anti-American protesters after being fired on in a town west of Baghdad, and at least seven demonstrators were hit, a U.S. officer said Tuesday.

The shooting took place Monday night in the town of Fallujah, about 30 miles west of Baghdad. Though residents reported 15 deaths, Col. Arnold Bray of the 82nd Airborne Division said seven people in the crowd were...

    It's truly precious how members of the antiwar left, whose superior consciences bade them to oppose war in Iraq because they really cared about the lives of U.S. troops and Iraqi civilians, are now bemoaning the lack of pre-emptive U.S. military force to protect Baghdad's national museum. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd opined that "the Pentagon could easily have saved the National Museum and library if they had redeployed the American troops assigned to guard Ahmad Chalabi, the Richard Perle pal." "The whole world saw the U.S. priorities when they guarded the oil ministry and stood by while other...
