according to cheney's plan, the murder squads will find their 2 henchmen 
dead on al-jazeera video footage.   at this point, the nazicons are so 
worried about the least bit of more bad news drowning their renewed positive 
outlook on the civil war that they are wasting millions of taxpayer dollars 
with ridiculous unwarranted measures to find two soldiers who were cleared 
out of the area by sand niggers  hours before the measures were taken.   too 
little too late to prevent more murder should be the motto of nazicons:


Scores of civilians were injured in the attacks

At least 41 people have been killed and 100 injured in a string of attacks 
in and around the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The targets included a minibus, markets and Iraqi security checkpoints.

The attacks came in defiance of a major security clampdown launched in 
Baghdad on Wednesday, which has seen thousands of extra troops on the 

The bombers seem determined to prove they can continue despite the curfews, 
checkpoints and combing operations, says the BBC's Jim Muir in Baghdad.

At least nine separate attacks were reported in and around Baghdad. They 
included car bombs, mortar attacks and a device planted on a minibus.

Civilian casualties

Baghdad's Haraj and Kazimiya markets were both targeted, causing many 
civilian casualties.

Security checkpoints in Mahmudiya, a town 30km (20 miles) south of Baghdad, 
and in Baghdad's Karrada district, were also hit - with many of the 
casualties reported to be civilians.

Others died when a device devastated a minibus in the al-Amin district of 
the city.

US soldiers 'missing'

Since the security clampdown was launched on Wednesday, thousands of extra 
US and Iraqi troops have been on the streets of Baghdad, manning checkpoints 
in a high-visibility security operation.

Officials had feared a backlash after the death of the leader of al-Qaeda in 
Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, despite a series of raids targeting his 
insurgency network in the wake of his death.

But they had also hoped to capitalise on possible disruption to the 
militants caused by Zarqawi's death and by the subsequent raids, and were 
keen to be seen as gaining the upper hand over the bombers, correspondents 

On Friday, a suspected suicide shoe-bomb attack at a key Shia mosque in 
Baghdad left 11 people dead - an indication that the bombers were prepared 
to change tactics to beat the new security regime.

Missing soldiers

In a separate development, the US army said it was hunting for two of its 
soldiers missing after an attack that killed a third.

The men's checkpoint south of Baghdad came under fire on Friday evening, and 
when back-up forces got there they found one man dead and two missing, 
officials said.

Teams of divers are searching canals and rivers near the scene, outside the 
town of Yusufiya.

"We are currently using every means at our disposal on the ground, in the 
air and in the water to find them," said US spokesman Major General William 

"We... will not stop looking until we find the missing soldiers."
