Still at War

This, from today's NY Times, speaks for itself:

AGHDAD, Iraq, Friday, July 4 � Two months after President Bush declared the end of major combat, the commander of allied forces in Iraq acknowledged on Thursday that "we're still at war," and the United States announced a reward of up to $25 million for the capture of Saddam Hussein or confirmation of his death.

The statement from the commander, Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez of the Army, came on a day in which 20 American soldiers were wounded and one was killed in five separate attacks.

One American soldier was killed and 10 were wounded in two attacks in central Iraq on Thursday night, the American military said today.
