Attacks targeting Iraqi police, army leave 22 people dead

Three attacks against Iraqi military and police left at least 22 people dead Sunday, the latest in a rash of violence targeting security officials in the country.

In the first incident, a car bomb targeting a police recruitment center in Kirkuk killed at least eight people and wounded 36 others, police officials said.

In the second incident, gunmen attacked an Iraqi army checkpoint that leads to a military base near Tikrit, killing four Iraqi soldiers, the Interior Ministry said.

    Crazy it became when Bush-Cheney madness got us in its grip.
    More of the same looms on the horizon if we don't get a grip on ourselves.

    See all the stability we gave the Iraqi people/government?
    We should have never been there in the first place.
