(( An all-too familiar scene on the streets of Baghdad...more carnage, the lives of more innocent civilians destroyed in a relentless terror campaign against anybody seen cooperating with the coalition.

BUT THEY ALSO SAY IT'S HAVING THE OPPOSITE EFFECT: THE MORNING AFTER THE LAST ATTACK AT THE RECRUITING CENTER, TWICE AS MANY VOLUNTEERS SHOWED UP, VOWING REVENGE.))

Although the target of the blast may have been the Iraqi forces, most of the recruits were already inside the compound...and on a busy Baghdad street at the height of rush hour, the bulk of the victims were Iraqi civilians.
Visiting the scene, interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi called on the people of Iraq to stay strong.
((ILYAD ALLAWI/INTERIM PRIME MINISTER: WE ARE GOING TO FACE THESE ESCALATIONS, WE ARE GOING TO FACE THE ENEMIES OF IRAQ AND THE IRAQI PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PREVAIL.))
