    Why are our troops still having patrols? Why hasn't the main stream media reported it?

    NASSIRIYA - A roadside bomb exploded near a U.S. military patrol, wounding seven civilians, including one child, in southern Nassiriya, 300 km (185 miles) southeast of Baghdad, provincial police chief Sabah al-Fatlawi said.

    You're right.

    Rueters is like the AP which is a group of reporters they report it and it's up to the mainstream media if they decide to report it to the public.

    You still have to maintain a perimeter, which means patrols.

    They are not supposed to be patroling they are supposed to be training. Why are they wasting my money doing something they are not supposed to be doing?
