Why These Targets?

Maybe the "insurgents" in Iraq are getting wise to the fact that Western reporters in that country seldom leave their hotels. Then again, there is the symbolic value of the location as well.
The bombs went off near the Palestine Hotel and another hotel, which overlook Firdos Square, where Iraqis and U.S. troops pulled down a statue of Saddam Hussein after the April 2003, U.S.-led invasion.

Then again, that was a big story largely because it was in eyesight of the hotels as well.
