Iraq claims 10 more Marines in Falluja bombing

Another Iraq tragedy... From Reuters:

Ten U.S. Marines conducting a foot patrol outside Falluja were killed by an insurgent bomb on Thursday in one of the deadliest attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq this year, the U.S. military announced on Friday.

The deaths came as President George W. Bush struggles to boost waning U.S. public support for the war, and as a growing U.S. troop-casualty toll has fueled calls by critics for a timetable to withdraw troops. [...]

The attack was one of the worst single incidents to hit U.S. Marines in the war.

No matter what your view is about the Iraq War, these 10 brave soldiers died serving their country. We should pause a moment (10 moments, even) to honor their sacrifice. May God be with and comfort their grieving families and friends.
