Insurgents in Iraq have not given up

Insurgents in Iraq have not given up, and officials expect more violence leading up to scheduled December elections.

"We're fighting our way to the elections," Army Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch, a spokesman for Multinational Force Iraq, said. "I've told you . . . that the insurgency didn't go away. But let it be known, at the end of the day on the 15th of December, there's no doubt in anybody's mind that there'll be elections conducted in a safe and secure environment for the people of Iraq. "

In the run-up to the Iraqi referendum, insurgent attacks averaged 90 a day. In the past week, that number dropped to about 81 per day, Lynch said. He said the attacks will increase as Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi works to achieve his goal of derailing democracy in Iraq. Coalition and Iraqi forces will increase operations to prevent these attacks, he added.
