US soldier dies in a blast in Iraq
The US military says that an American soldier has been killed in a roadside blast. This incident took place in Diyala province in Northern Iraq.

THE US military says that an American soldier has been killed in a roadside blast in Diyala province in Northern Iraq.

Military officials said in an statement saying that the death of the soldier from northern division is under investigation. The identity of the soldier has been kept secret till their family member get notified.

According to reports, the death toll of US military personnel in Iraq since 2003 is at least 4,394. Soldiers are dying and reasons are knowingly unknown. Obama has announced the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq by August 2010. But recent political upheaval indicates that it would not be that much easy to leave Iraq.
Specially, when goal of peace is not visible in near future. Bombing on day to day basis kills hundreds of innocent of Iraqis any initiative on the part of US to withdraw will definitely start a fresh Civil war.

So, the paradox of seeking peace is between the loss of someone you know and the unknown. The death of US soldier is definitely painful, but sacrifice of one such soldier saves the life of thousands of innocent Iraqis.
