US soldiers have been dying in larger numbers, one per day for the past five days. There had been thirty five bombings in Baghdad alone during the month of April, by the time we phoned Jamail April 27th.

Hundreds of civilians have been killed, hundreds more wounded, and there is no end in sight. Does this mean the Obama administration will change withdrawal plans? The administration confirmed US combat troops will leave Iraq by August of 2010.

Could the government of Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki survive without the US occupation to prop it up?

We'll discuss these questions and more with Dahr Jamail, author of 'Beyond the Green Zone, Dispatches from an unembedded journalist in occupied Iraq'.

His new book, 'Military Resistors, Soldiers who Refuse to Fight in Iraq', another Haymarket book, is due out shortly from Haymarket Books.
