Bombers kill 50 in Iraq, wound nearly 250

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Three female suicide bombers killed 28 people and wounded 92 in Baghdad on Monday as Shi'ite pilgrims flooded into the Iraqi capital for a major religious event, police said.

In the northern oil city of Kirkuk a bomb killed at least 22 people and wounded 150 at a protest against a controversial provincial elections law, Iraqi health and security officials said. The U.S. military said initial reports showed the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.

The blasts marked one of the bloodiest days in months and underscored the fragility of recent security gains in Iraq, where violence is at its lowest level since early 2004.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Baghdad blasts, but al Qaeda has often targeted Shi'ite pilgrims taking part in religious events in Iraq. It considers Shi'ism -- the majority Muslim denomination in Iraq -- heretical.

"These blasts that happened today will increase our determination to finalize the ceremony of this visit and defeat terrorism," pilgrim Taher Abd-Noor said.

Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has urged foreign dignitaries and firms to come to Iraq, citing stronger Iraqi security forces more able to keep the peace with less U.S. military help.

The apparently coordinated explosions in Baghdad shattered a period of relative calm in the city and took place despite a heavy security clampdown before the annual Shi'ite pilgrimage to the Kadhamiya shrine.

At least 1 million people are expected to take part in the pilgrimage, which peaks on Tuesday and marks the death of one of Shi'ite Islam's 12 imams.

The U.S. military said it was possible that three suicide bombers had carried out the attacks in the capital but did not specify if they were women. It

When will the Left stop attacking the President and the WOT and acknowledge that the one common denominator in most of these sub-human attacks is Islamofascism? Ever?

Maliki said that that a phased drawdown over a period of 16 months would make sense if the situation continues to improve. There is nothing wrong with that. But obviously the current conditions don’t allow this yet.

RUSH: Yesterday we had a caller on this program who was all upset that Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister of Iraq, had thrown George W. Bush under the bus by seemingly endorsing Obama’s idiotic plan of troop withdrawal in 16 months. This, as the Washington Post points out today, is not what happened. Well, al-Maliki did, but the point is that al-Maliki has been all over the board on this. Max Boot of the Council on Foreign Relations has a piece in the Washington Post today. In fact, The Washington Post twice today, in their lead editorial and the Max Boot piece — Max used to be with the Wall Street Journal, by the way — savaged a bunch of premises that prop up Obama. Now, before I share with you some of the detail from Max Boot’s piece, I want to take you back in time, year ago, two years ago, three years ago. Remember, nobody disrespected Nouri al-Maliki more than our left wing and the Drive-By Media. They hated al-Maliki. They thought he was a puppet of Bush. Remember this? They thought he was a tool. In fact, they thought a lot of things. Some people thought he was a stealth Iranian agent. Some people thought he was out to sabotage us. Some people thought he was incompetent. Al-Maliki was not respected by anybody on the left including the Drive-By Media and now all of a sudden they adore him? Come on, al-Maliki’s running for reelection in Iraq. He’s betting on foreign aid in the Middle East. He’s watching the Obama craze in the United States. He’s trying to get some help here.

Now, there’s an Iraqi equivalent of General Shinseki. His name is Brigadier General Bilal al-Dayni, commander of Iraqi troops in Basra. He is saying, “We hope the Americans will stay until 2020.” He’s the commander on the ground. And, by the way, as Max Boot points out today, Nouri al-Maliki lives in a green zone with Americans. He doesn’t travel around the country, doesn’t get in his car and drive home to Baghdad at night. He lives in a green zone. He works in a green zone. The commanders on the ground, the Iraqi commanders on the ground, again Brigadier General Bilal al-Dayni, commander of troops in Basra, say, “We hope the Americans will stay until 2020.” The defense minister, Abdul Qadir, says his forces “cannot assume full responsibility for internal security until 2012 and for external security,” meaning an invasion from Iran, “until 2018.” And yet the Drive By Media is sitting there and they are all excited about this 2010 business because al-Maliki tended to agree with Obama.

Let’s consult Max Boot. He says: “This is part of a pattern for Maliki, who, though he won office and has stayed alive (literally and politically) with American support, has hardly been an unwavering friend of the United States — at least in public. Although he was an opponent of the Saddam Hussein regime, he was not a proponent of the US-led invasion. Having spent long years of exile in Syria and Iran, he has had to overcome deeply ingrained suspicions of the United States.” And then Max Boot makes the point that he lives in a green zone, he doesn’t get out of there. “In May 2006, shortly after becoming prime minister, he claimed, ‘Our forces are capable of taking over the security in all Iraqi provinces within a year and a half.’ In October 2006, when violence was spinning out of control, Maliki declared that it would be ‘only a matter of months’ before his security forces could ‘take over the security portfolio entirely and keep some multinational forces only in a supporting role.’

“President Bush wisely ignored Maliki. Instead of withdrawing US troops, he sent more. The prime minister wasn’t happy. On Dec. 15, 2006, the Wall Street Journal reported, ‘Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has flatly told Gen. George Casey, the top American military commander in Iraq, that he doesn’t want more US personnel deployed to the country, according to US military officials.’ When the surge went ahead anyway, Maliki gave it an endorsement described in news accounts as ‘lukewarm.’ In January 2007, with the surge just starting, Maliki predicted ‘that within three to six months our need for the American troops will dramatically go down.’ In April 2007, when most of Baghdad was still out of control, the prime minister said that Iraqi forces would assume control of security in every province by the end of the year. Even now, when the success of the surge is undeniable, Maliki,” as is the case with Obama, “won’t give US troops their due,” and he cites the Der Spiegel interview in which he mentioned his own political achievement.

The point of all this, ladies and gentlemen, is that al-Maliki has been saying since 2006, “Yeah, we’re going to be able to take over here in months. Get the Americans out of here, we’re going to handle our own security.” So it was nothing out of the ordinary for al-Maliki to say, “Yeah, 2010, I like what Obama’s saying,” because he had been saying it over and over again and he has been just as wrong as Obama is wrong. Then the story does mention the news from Brigadier General al-Dayni, who says he wants the Americans to stay until 2020, the Defense Minister Abdul Qadir says we need them here until 2012 and maybe 2018. This is what the Washington Post editorial is writing about today. There is no agreement. There is no universal agreement on the Obama strategery of getting us out by 2010 or in 16 months. So it’s a fascinating series of events.

Now, folks, one of the things that you may be asking about here, “Rush, you — even you — have said the American people don’t care about Iraq. They care about gasoline prices, energy and so forth, the local economy, the national economy.” I still stand by that. I know that’s true. The reason we’re talking about this is because the Drive By Media in pure slavish sycophantic mode, more interested in helping make history than report it, is ignoring totally the substance of what Barack Obama is saying. They are in these countries where this news is being made and they are not reporting it. They think they are doing a bang up job reporting what’s going on over there, but they’re not. It takes a column by Max Boot to give us the perspective of Nouri al-Maliki. They are not reporting it. Somebody has to. The presidential elections matter. What presidents say and what they do and what they say they’re going to do is important. And this is important. This is national security and Barack Obama is demonstrating a total lack of qualification, a total lack of understanding. He is demonstrating he is not who he is. He is demonstrating he is not who they tell us he is. They have done a great job of papering over who he really is. Twenty years a member of Jeremiah Wright’s church, running around with pals like Bill Ayers who tried to blow up the Pentagon. Working as a community organizer for this ACORN group which is the most fraudulent voter registration group in the country. That’s who he was working for and with as a community organizer. This is important stuff and we’re being conned by a con man and his supporting cast that is this fawning bunch of disciples known as the Drive By Media. So it’s important.

Not sure why they would be. According to Obama’s new version of what he originally said, his plan depends upon the situation on the ground. If these are the conditions on the ground, he’s gonna have to keep our troops there.
Or come out with a revised version of what he’s saying now.

YEs, isn't it interesting how violence, racial and religious strife follow Obama wherever he goes? Besides, Obama will say he predicted this all along and this is what he meant when he credited success in Iraq to the Muslims - bombers included - and not our troops.

It would actually be very bad and undermine the effort of our troops.
That would be like reporting the same during Viet nam.
They did after the Tet Offensive in ‘68 which turned the tide against us.
The NVA was all but defeated and then we pulled out leaving them intact. had we stuck to it we would have left in victory not defeat or stalemate as is viewed today.
The media is sometimes our worst enemy.

The big news here that no one has seemed to catch is that there were three female suicide bombers.
females are thought to be less worthy to take on such a role in the cause for the radical Muslim. having three of them do this makes me think that they are running out of able bodied men to do their dirty work.

We don't hear those horrid noises too much these days, but being that it's a big Shia holiday, they came out for it.

The good guys are on it and I hope they waste all of the scum behind these attacks. It's a lot easier to find that vermin these days with the Iraqis ratting them out.

They’ve been running out of people to do suicide attacks for quite a while now. Most of the AQI volunteers have wanted to be actual fighters against U.S. troops. AQI just tricked them into being suicide bombers. I read an account from a survivor of one such attack. He now preaches the anti-Jihad to others in Saudi Arabia. He felt very betrayed. AQI is just REALLY bad at making friends across the board.

Please explain:

How would reporting the number of people killed by muslim terrorists attacks all over the world, in England, Scotland, Spain, India, France, Afghanistan, etc., etc., etc. "undermine the effort of our troops"?

Please explain:

What experience did we have in Vietnam that compares with the worldwide muslim terrorism we face today?

I don't recall reports of VC and NVA bombing English and Spainish commuter trains, flying passenger jets into skyscrapers, etc.
The only activity along those lines was by our own home-grown Peaceniks and leftist college students, which was well covered by the media at that time.

The media is sometimes our worst enemy.

I agree.

I believe many people don't realize the enormity and extent of muslim terrorism and much of the blame rests with the MSM. Publishing a daily accounmt of muslim terrorist activity would go a long way to countering the false propaganda about Islamo-phobia, false accusations of discrimination against muslims, false and mis-leading stories of (non-existent) Moderate muslims.

That is why we never see such accounts in the MSM but do see frequent references to only the US military casualties. That is why the NY Times wants to publish more photos of dead US military but doesn't publish the same kinds of photos of other victims of muslim terrorism.

Probably, in Obama-speak, it's just another sign that the Sunnis need to do more awakening, or that people wouldn't be blowing themselves up if they had job opportunities, or education, or (fill in the blank).

Trying to think like an Obama supporter risks killing too many brain cells in the effort, so I'll stop now.

Former Iraqi prime minister: “We have failed”

Fri, 07/25/2008 - 2:02pm

Appearing today at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, former Iraqi Prime Minister and serving parliamentarian Ayad Allawi stressed that the security gains of the “surge” are only temporary. The surge “did succeed from a military point of view,” he told a small group of reporters before the event, but he emphasized that its gains could evaporate unless political reconciliation follows. “The first issue is reconciliation,” he said in the public session. But sitting down with his “friends” such as current President Jalal Talabani won’t do the trick. “We need to sit with those people who have been disenfranchised,” he said. “Except for terrorists.”

Like Michael Yon said, the terrorists will continue to launch several spectacular attacks most likely near our elections this year. Nevertheless, the end is near and Al-Qaeda's days in Iraq are numbered.

But my question is why would females want to become terrorists?

The fight against Al-Qaida is now in Kirkuk. The media is wailing and crying now because the war will be lost in Kirkuk. The United States and its Iraqi ally will crush AQ there as they have everywhere else they have fought.

My thought was in seeing casualty counts of our troops on a daily basis no matter where it is. When people see that number in their face every day all they want is to pullout. They don’t think of the end cost of just getting out.
Similar to when the black hawks went down in Mogadishu. they paraded our soldiers bodies in the streets and American citizens seeing that on television demanded we leave immediately.
it was a bad move on our part to leave.

I think we all agree that the MSM will not cover that ever. It would be considered politically incorrect and anytime that I have seen any MSM attempt to do so, they are attacked by the likes of CAIR. Muslims around the world need to be the ones who do this in public, until that time the only thing that the MSM will do is report the effects in the terms of body counts that Americans suffer.

I agree with you 100%, but the reality is that the Muslim communities need to be the ones to do this. If they don’t then anyone who is not Muslim is seen as attacking the faith and then they all jump on the bandwagon attacking the messenger, not the message.

“Cut ‘em off, fence ‘em in, throw ammo over the fence, and let ‘em all blow each other to hell. The sooner they’re all gone, the better !”

There will come a day when rational, patriotic Americans will wish we had given the country of Iraq the Berlin treatment, I have no doubt. It’s what I’ve been saying all along, as much as I’d love to be proven wrong. The bottom line is that they’re muslim, which is a belief system. A hateful, sick, destructive belief system, no less so than Naziism. We would have never tolerated and would never tolerate the kind of hate and destruction the nazis are about, but we do from muslims because of its status as a religion.

I hope and pray every night for success in Iraq because that is what is best for the world and certainly for our military. I just cannot pretend however, that Iraqi muslims are somehow magically different than their brethren in countries we do not have combat operations going on in. If they buy into the ideology, then they are same. Even in places like Qatar, the women are covered in burkas and the men go around hugging each other and holding hands all day for the love of God. Sick, sick culture through and through.

“I’m not talking about troop casualties - I’m talking about victims of muslim terrorism all over the world.”

Imagine the response if the only thing posted was the cost to muslim lives, injuries, jobs, property etc, that is caused by muslim extremism. That alone would be a huge improvement over the lack of reporting today. Many more people might understand the threat to everyone of us if they just got that information.
