Basra car bomb kills 10, wounds 30: military
"A car bomb in a crowded market in the southern Iraqi city of Basra on Monday killed at least 10 people and wounded 30, a military officer said.
"It was a car bomb in the al-Qibla district, and the result was 10 killed and 30 wounded," the officer at the scene told AFP.
Earlier, police and hospital sources confirmed there were dead and wounded in the attack, which targeted a popular shopping district full of stores and cafes.
Basra, like the rest of the Iraq's southern cities, is predominantly Shiite Muslim.
Twin bombings on Monday in Shiite holy cities in southern Iraq targeting Iranians killed at least 18 people, 10 of them pilgrims from Iran.
Police and local officials said the attacks also wounded 58 people, mostly Iranian pilgrims."
The propaganda goes into over drive
Afghanistan: How Well Is the U.S. Really Doing in Kandahar?
"NATO commanders are boasting of dramatic progress just weeks into the U.S.-led push into Taliban strongholds around Kandahar province. They say the heavily pounded insurgents have fled some areas for good, setting the stage for the Kabul government to finally establish its rule in the region and to initiate reconstruction. These upbeat claims coincide with talk about behind-the-scenes negotiations with the militants, suggesting that for all the fierce hostilities, an endgame is in mind, if not in sight.
"Now, as the fighting season winds down, the coalition's spin machine is in high gear. A host of recent stories have supported the military's assertion that clearing operations in districts surrounding Kandahar are making headway, with some going so far as to say that insurgents have been "routed." These stories tend to be lopsidedly sourced to military and civilian officials. Yet many reports from journalists embedded with troops in the field are at variance with the official assertions. Most describe a stalemate at best, or even describe the Taliban as having the initiative
If the Taliban remains robust when fighting resumes in the spring, what remains of U.S. popular support may come crashing down. In that case, any exaggeration of the current campaign's progress would be more than misleading. It would be self-defeating."

"Graham's comments were dismissed by Iran's Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, as "a joke," and he advised reporters not to take them seriously. Nor is that simply bravado: Iranian analysts believe that the U.S., given its travails in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in no position to launch a new war against a far stronger foe".
