Meanwhile in Iraq - Part 2

A car bomb exploded in a crowded outdoor market in the northern city of Kirkuk on Tuesday, killing at least 24 people, police said, a deadly reminder of the challenges facing the Iraqi government even as it celebrated the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from cities.


It came hours after four U.S. soldiers were killed in combat Monday in Baghdad.

Despite the continued violence, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki assured Iraqis that government forces taking control of urban areas were more than capable of ensuring security.


"Who are you going to believe - me or your lying eyes?" he may have said.

....hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
