Market Bombing

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has blamed Saddam loyalists for a market bombing that killed at least 130 people and injured 305. The market is in a predominantly Shiite district. Meanwhile, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani made an appeal for unity.


BBC:

Police say the vehicle blew up in al-Sadriya district as people bought food ahead of a night-time curfew.

It shattered stalls and left a huge crater in the street, in the heavily populated, predominantly Shia area.

Only the Sadr City bombings in November, which killed more than 200 people, have claimed more lives.

[...]On Saturday, Iraq’s most prominent Shia cleric, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, made a new appeal to all Iraqis.

“Everybody knows the necessity for us to stand together and reject the sectarian tension to avoid stirring sectarian differences,” he said.

To Ichthus:

Read the Bible.

Pay attention to world affairs.

Don’t rely on the liberal drive-by media for truthful information.

Pray that God will destroy the cancer of liberalism that is infecting the American culture and is destroying the foundational principles of this great American republic.

Restore America.

One more victory for Bush/Cheney and their entourages. They’ll have a good night rest when more innocent people in Iraq died.

Bush: “What, me worry?”  The faster dead Iraqis pile up, the sooner George and his corporate handlers will achieve their ultimate goal: the complete destruction of a country that deluded itself into thinking that their homeland and its oil actually belonged to THEM.

This is just one more example of the sectarian violence that is about to expand. And this is an even greater example of why we must not allow more U.S. troops to be placed in harm’s way.
