Baghdad Erupts in Mob Violence

July 10, 2006

BAGHDAD, July 9 — A mob of gunmen went on a brazen daytime rampage through a predominantly Sunni Arab district of western Baghdad on Sunday, pulling people from their cars and homes and killing them in what officials and residents called a spasm of revenge by Shiite militias for the bombing of a Shiite mosque on Saturday. Hours later, two car bombs exploded beside a Shiite mosque in another Baghdad neighborhood in a deadly act of what appeared to be retaliation.

While Baghdad has been ravaged by Sunni-Shiite bloodletting in recent months, even by recent standards the violence here on Sunday was frightening, delivered with impunity by gun-wielding vigilantes on the street. In the culture of revenge that has seized Iraq, residents all over the city braced for an escalation in the cycle of retributive mayhem between the Shiites and Sunnis that has threatened to expand into civil war.



It's here.

It's clear.

They (the Bush-wah admin) needs someone to blame for this, the most grievously monstrous government-organized pig-fuck since George Armstrong Custer decided the Little Big Horn would be a cakewalk, will need someone (besides themselves) to blame.

History tells us it will be the people who WARNED them this would happen.

A sense of pity and compassion would indicate that pulling the troops out would make some improvement, but addictive greed says "Stay the course."
