Where is that safety in Baghdad McCain has been promising?
BAGHDAD (AP) -- Six bombs exploded in predominantly Shiite sections of the capital Sunday, killing at least 45 people in a renewal of sectarian carnage that set back the U.S. push to pacify Baghdad.
North of Baghdad, two British helicopters crashed after an apparent mid-air collision, killing two service members, U.K. officials said.
The U.S. military announced three U.S. troop deaths -- two soldiers and a Marine killed in separate incidents.
That was the recent bombing. There have been bombings like this since Thursday. Saturday's was much worse. The most intellectual capital of the middle east that flourished under Saddam is now tarnished.

Hey! Now wait just one second.... Bagdad is perfectly safe if you have a flak jacket on and a battalion to guard you.
Apparently some of the bombers are only weekend warriors.
