More Bombings In Iraq Kill 52
Another example of what a great policy it was to go to war in Iraq has reared its ugly head.
At least 52 people were killed Wednesday as a motorcycle rigged with explosives detonated in Baghdad’s Sadr City and militants targeted mostly Shi’ite neighborhoods around the country…
Baghdad has been hit by wave after wave of bombings since April as the precarious peace enjoyed since the end of Iraq’s sectarian war in 2008 has unraveled.
Explosives and suicide bombs have been favored by Sunni extremists as they seek to target Shi’ite areas and intimidate their own religious community.
The latest bloodshed comes as Prime Minister Nouri Maliki wages a war against Sunni militants in western Anbar province neighboring Syria, and has become a base for ISIL. Despite the offensive, the pace of attacks around the country goes on undiminished.
