    Thats sad 😦
    I know I’ll be sounding dumb…but what are mortar attacks? Are they bombs or something?

  2. Agent KGB Says:

    It’s not dumb. They’re like bombs kind of, they fire shells, I think with some explosive in them or sometimes they’re just solid, at lower velocities than most projectile weapons.

    81 Iraqis? I swear I remember the days when a single death would be a news headline for hours, but today Iraqi deaths sometimes don’t even make it till the later half of a news bulletin. Makes me sad seeing how we all got used to hearing this daily news of deaths…

  4. Agent KGB Says:

    I feel the same way. Antiwar.com has a number every day of the reported Iraqi deaths and usually it’s over 100. People become kind of immune to it in a way I think.
