Dateline Iraq: Bombing, Shootings Kill 17 in Iraq

Do you get the feeling things are getting better? I don't:

Insurgents killed at least 17 people in bombings and shootings in Iraq on Wednesday, including nine policemen in attacks in northern Samarra town and near Kirkuk, security officials said.

The predominantly Sunni town of Samarra was shaken by a roadside bomb which targetted a police patrol, killing five police officers and two civilians, police Captain Alaa al-Samarrai said.
We're struggling to even maintain control of Baghdad, and Iraq is more than just Baghdad. It doesn't look like we're in control of anything over there, at least not for long.
