Bush on Iraq: More Troops Coming

Photo: The arabic in the letter loosely translates to "Christians of this home - leave in 24 hrs or die." These notes are always delivered with one or more (usually spent) bullet casings.

American troops in Iraq: This week marks a turning point in the war in Iraq. President Bush is expected to announce Wednesday that he is increasing the deployment of U.S. troops in Iraq by as many as 20,000. More.

Iraq academia: Over 1,000 Iraqi teachers and professors have been murdered by radical Islamists. The ones who've survived led their departments in medicine, dentistry, computer sciences. But since they were targets for assassination they packed up and headed for a new life in Syria. More.

Iranian book censorship: For the most part, former president Mohammed Khatami left the publishing industry alone. But President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's censors are holding up the printing of thousands of books. More.

Even as Iraq targeted militias, British soldiers patrolled Basra -- with the help of an Iraqi security officer -- in the wake of the murder of two Iraqi interpreters who were kidnapped -- along with an American citizen -- in an area called Al-Haritha. More.
