I think this article is of satisfactory quality.

It is questionable to grade your own article as you have clearly done some massive editing to the article. Another issue is the discrepancy in the deaths in the article title and article itself. Reuters is reporting 14 deaths, do we have a majority consensus in the media on the actual number of deaths?--Xanadu 06:17, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Well, the Dutch media seems to be incongruent in some ways. Like for instance I found that the policebase was called Salhiyah, and not al Kharkhi. 15 dead, instead of 16. I think that numbers will be a major issue in these events since it goes about a war. To bad, the truth won't come closer than with dead people, at least they know the truth (lol, black-humor ;-)).

21 dead?

I have a problem with this sentence: "These guerrilla attacks are part of their latest effort to undermine confidence in the country's new U.S.-backed Iraqi police force. They are also an continued reaction on Friday's attack. "

Considering that the article doesn't mention who was responsible for the attacks (beyond "suicide bombers"), I would like to know how we know what their motivations were. If this is someones opinion, then it should say who. I support the article with this sentence removed. - Borofkin 05:40, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)

There are conflicting reports about the people responsible (Some news agencies reporting suicide bombers, other car bombs, etc.) and I have to agree that this is somewhat against NPOV. --Xanadu 19:22, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I support the article as it currently stands - Borofkin 22:51, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)
