An incident


A friend sent me this article:

“BAGHDAD (AP) -- Three U.S. soldiers and an interpreter were killed Monday during fighting north of Baghdad, the military announced.

The combat took place in Diyala province, an area northeast of Baghdad that remains volatile despite an overall drop in violence nationwide.

The statement did not provide more details.

The attack came two weeks after a suicide car bomber struck a U.S. patrol in the northern city of Mosul, killing four American soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter in the deadliest single attack against U.S. forces in nine months.”

On Monday I drove from Baghdad to FOB Warhorse, which is in Diyala, but nobody here speaks about this incident, at least not to me. It seems to go unnoticed.
