A car bomb explosion in the holy city of Karbala has killed 68 people. After the attack, an angry crowd gathered and began attacking Iraqi police, accusing them of failing to protect the population. Elsewhere in Iraq, nine U.S. soldiers have been killed in the last two days.

“Father Forgive them for they know not what they do . . .” The Bush Administration, that is. Chaos and more chaos.  If the U.S. can’t control its own gangs how in the ____ can it control the insurgents? These are very angry people who are becoming more and more belligerent with every new relative or friend who is mercilessly and futilely perishing.  An entire generation of boys will grow up fatherless.  Do you honestly think that these children, will feel much more than animosity towards the U.S.
