Attacks on police stations in Iraq kill 3, Interior Ministry says

At least three people were killed and 22 others wounded in bombings targeting police stations in Iraq on Sunday, the Interior Ministry said.

A suicide bomber struck a police station outside the predominantly Sunni city of Ramadi, killing at least two policemen and wounding 10 others.

The Interior Ministry said gunmen attacked the station after the bombing, and clashes with police were still ongoing.

      Then one shouldn't tell the world if one if
      is fat or short.
      You will not see *me* making fun of you for that.
      As I said before, if you are offended by something someone says, call them out on it.

    So that i understand this correctly, answer this...you believe if a FEW do something, than ALL are guilty and should be exterminated??? Talk about dumbing down! Good thing we dont all feel that way there would be no human race at all!

    @kandi-i didnt say exterminate anyone,i said hold them accountable.as philip said quite a few nazi scientists worked for nasa,airplane manufacturers etc... a form of plea bargaining-serve the u.s. government in exchange for freedom.the german citizens didnt have anything to offer and werent the actual criminals but had to deal with rebuilding germany,starvation,hatred by the entire world and being forced to exhume the bodies from the mass graves of the jews so they could have proper burials.

      hamsta, all Germans were not guilty or held accountable for a few, and all Muslims shouldn't be, either...not to mention that one is a religion, and another is a nationality.
      You getting angry at Muslims and holding them all responsible (um, you"re aware that there are many countries that are Muslim) is a tad bit prejudiced, wouldn't you say?

      I meant to ask you...what what going on with that car with the grenades in it in NO?
      I would have thought you would have posted on that thread, it being the city you live in and all.

      I'm right up there with you, Jeff...some of my descendents survived, and here I am.
      I'm not Jewish either, before someone takes that as a statement that I am.
      Not that there's anything wrong with being Jewish.
      It just needs to be said that many people died under that regime.

    If somebody says something that offends you, call them out on it.
    And concerning what you said above, many of those who were exterminated in Germany were creamated.
    And this has jack sh!t to do with your desire to impale Muslims, so please quit changing the subject (as a troll does) and answer questions directly.

    Philip also said true muslims vs phony ones but you still persist in saying ALL! Fact of the matter is we have not lived the lives any of those people have lived and we have no right to judge! Their method is no dif than Americas early days with Indians!

    @kandi, the reason the deathcount was low is because the police station was the target.. not the people...

    @ banasy-history is in the eye of the beholder.there are things they dont tell u.if u were to go to germany and tell that to the survivors they would re educate u with some of their own history.take the civil war for instance.they teach u that war was fought over slavery.the truth is that even though slavery was a large portion of the war it was really about states rights to govern themselves.u have a governer and a mayor underneath him.u have a county sherrif and a local city district beneath him.the confederacy didnt truly lose the war,it was a draw,a compromise.as far as that car full of grenades i tried to comment but i guess the moderator is to politically correct to understand the police are the real criminals and the citizens here are at war against police corruption.it would probably blow ur mind if i told u that nopd is not the most corrupt.google the name kelvin kaigler and u wont believe what u read but i know it to be true cuz thats how i ended up here.kelvin is my friend and we call him kiwi.

    members of my family died in Germany.
    You cannot "educate" me on anything there.
    Try to explain the grenade thing again.

    And, please, never make the mistake that I (or anyone) is lacking education.
    I do assure you, that is a mistake.
