What happened in "Pacified" Dora Today?

This happened.

The child seen here being treated for shrapnel wounds in Baghdad's Yarmouk hospital was of the thirteen people wounded in the roadside bombings this morning in Dora. Dora (al-Doura) has been repeatedly "pacified." Apparently the occupiers find this sort of thing "disheartening."

"BAGHDAD, Iraq - The two-month-old U.S.-Iraqi bid to crush violence in the Iraqi capital has not met "overall expectations," as attacks in Baghdad rose by 22 percent in the first three weeks of Ramadan, the U.S. military spokesman said Thursday.

The spike in bloodshed during the Islamic holy month of fasting was "disheartening" and the Americans were working with Iraqi authorities to "refocus" security measures, Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell said"

General there's a cure for your disheartenment. - Leave.
