US Boosts Its Use of Airstrikes in Iraq

The Washington Post's Josh White reports, "The U.S. military conducted more than five times as many airstrikes in Iraq last year as it did in 2006, targeting al-Qaeda safe houses, insurgent bombmaking facilities and weapons stockpiles in an aggressive strategy aimed at supporting the U.S. troop increase by overwhelming enemies with air power." Meanwhile, from Baghdad, Stephen Farrell reports for The New York Times: "A woman carried out a suicide bombing near a Shiite mosque in Diyala Province on Wednesday, killing at least eight people. The attack provoked Shiite militiamen to use mortars against a nearby Sunni village in retaliation." And Ali al-Fadhily and Dahr Jamail report for Inter Press Service, "The newly formed 'Awakening' forces set up by the U.S. military are bringing new conflict among people."
