The resistance still aims at US troops

but ends up killing Iraqis, again.

"Iraqi officials say a roadside bomb blast has killed six people and wounded 12 others in the southern city of Basra.

Provincial officials say Sunday's attack seemed to target a U.S. military convoy, but hit a civilian bus instead. Authorities say women and children are among the victims, but the number is unclear.

Under the 2008 security agreement between the United States and Iraq, all American troops must leave the country by the end of the year. There currently are about 50,000 U.S. troops stationed in Iraq, mainly in a non-combat role."

Maybe the bombers are Iranian?

The IRA in Northern Ireland use to claim the same thing whenever one of their bombs killed civilians instead of the British troops the IRA was supposedly targeting.
