Today's Iraq


Iraq - Insurgents attacked police stations, gunned down government officials and set off bombs Sunday in central Iraq, leaving more than 50 people dead and more than 60 injured over two days in a dramatic escalation of violence as U.S. forces prepare to storm rebel-held Fallujah.

The wave of violence sweeping the troubled Sunni Triangle north and west of Baghdad may be aimed at relieving pressure on Fallujah, where about 10,000 American troops are massing for a major assault if Prime Minister Ayad Allawi gives the order.

So are they stepping up the voilence to protect Fallujah, or are they only braver because the soldiers, that used to keep them in line, are now stationed outside Fallujah?

Just where did the 10,000 American troops come from?
