In any war there is what you call acceptable losses. The mullahs ruling Iran are insane and it should be no surprise that they did the bombing. Not only that, president Bush vowed that the Shrine would be rebuilt. Perhaps the mullahs knew that and so did not consider it much of a loss.

To add a bit with no response required. Whoever carried out the attack was very carefull not to damage the tombs of the two caliphs. Only the dome was taken out. If it was done by the sunni to spite the shia they would have done a far more complete demolition. This job was quite surgical in nature.
