Dateline Iraq: Seven Soldiers Killed

Reuters:

In a statement, the military said four Marines were killed in the vast desert region [of Anbar] on Thursday while conducting combat operations. It gave no further details.

U.S. President George W. Bush visited Anbar on Monday and hailed improved security in the province, previously the most dangerous region in Iraq for American soldiers.

Separately, the military said three soldiers were killed in northern Iraq on Thursday when an explosion hit their vehicle.

[...]

The deaths take to more than 3,750 the number of U.S. soldiers killed since the start of the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Eighteen U.S. soldiers have died so far this month.
What was it that Bush said in Australia about how we're doing in Iraq?

Oh yeah, "we're kicking ass".
