Meanwhile, in the other forgotten war:

(8/29/06 - KANDAHAR, Afghanistan) - A suicide bomber in a car struck a NATO-Afghan military convoy Tuesday, killing one civilian and wounding two others, a day after a bomb at a market left 21 civilians dead and 43 wounded, officials said.

Another bomb, detonated by remote control, killed two police on patrol in Helmand province, an official said....

Please note:

The explosion [Monday] was the second deadliest suicide bombing in southern Afghanistan this year; on Aug. 3, a bomber blew up his car in the bazaar at Panjwai, outside Kandahar, killing 21 people.

(When that article appeared, the death toll in the Monday bombing was 17.)

This is all being done by desperate dead-enders, I'm sure.
