Although the U.S. war on Iraq was declared over by U.S. President George W. Bush months ago, there are new signs that forces resentful of the American presence in the country, are increasing the pressure and the anti-US violence. U.S. soldiers are dying at the rate of one or two a day in Iraq and the U.S. administration has been forced to acknowledge that it is engaged in an increasingly dangerous guerilla war. This admission comes some three months after President Bush declared that the Iraqi war was over with only a little mopping up left to complete. Groups of armed fighters from the Baath Party and Saddam Hussein's security services have organized themselves into a loose network of resistance to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Calling themselves Awdah or 'The Return', they are harassing American troops with constant hit-and-run attacks that are claiming at least one American life daily.
