Iraq News (28 March)

The Good: Read about US forces take care of business on the outskirts of Sadr City in Stars and Stripes. I don't know about you, but I'm glad these brave men do what they do. Reporting of operations from Basra remains pretty sketchy...depends on which source of media you go to.

The Bad: Pretty horrendous day. Huge protests in Sadr City against the Prime Minister. The Green Zone got nailed again and another civilian was killed. A pipeline was destroyed by saboteurs in Basrah. Bad all around.

The Ugly: Baghdad has been slapped with a 24/7 curfew (which I haven't seen since the Samarra minarets were bombed in June 2007). It's a pain in the ass for Baghdad citizens, but these are tough times.
