Nice PayDay for a few hours of work: Baghdad robbers grab $1m in cash

Baghdad robbers grab $1m in cash

One person died in a bomb attack near a university in central Baghdad

Iraqi gunmen disguised as soldiers have stolen $1m (£0.51m, 0.76m euro) in cash en route to Baghdad's central bank.
The 10 men, who were wearing Iraqi army uniforms, ambushed the security vehicle and stole bags of cash.
Four private security guards were kidnapped during the robbery, which happened in the Iraqi capital's busy Sadoun Street.
Elsewhere in Iraq, at least 16 people have been killed in violent incidents, including a pregnant woman.
The woman, who died along with three of her children, was shot dead in a village south of Kirkuk.
Police gave no motive for the attack but said that her husband was a Kurd and a member of the old army, according to Agence France Presse.
University attack
In a separate attack near Baghdad's Mustansiriyah university, a bomb killed a student and wounded at least seven others.
The US military said that four US soldiers had been killed by roadside bombs late on Sunday, bringing the number of troop deaths to more than 40 so far this month.
In other incidents:
In the town of Dujail, north of Baghdad, gunmen kidnapped five primary school teachers on their way to work by minibus
In southern Baghdad, four people were killed when four mortar rounds hit the Abu Chi neighbourhood
In the capital's southern Dura district, a suicide bomber exploded his vehicle near a police commando base, killing one policeman and wounding five others
A roadside bomb blasted the capital's Palestine Street, in the west of the city, killing one and wounding six.

Looks like Halliburton has competition.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
