Two suicide bombers, one in an explosives-laden car and the other on foot, struck a cluster of funeral tents packed with mourning families in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad, the deadliest in a string of attacks around Iraq that killed at least 96 people on Saturday.
The assaults, the latest in a months-long surge of violence, are a chilling reminder of insurgents determination to re-ignite sectarian conflict more than a decade after the U.S.-led invasion.
Thousands of Iraqis have been killed in violent attacks in recent monthsa level of bloodshed not seen since Iraq pulled back from the brink of civil war in 2008despite appeals for restraint from Shiite and Sunni political leaders.

Let the Muslims kill eachother. Seriously, we have no business doing anything until they start exporting their evil. Then some bombs drop and silence for a while. They are the devils tools, and they aren’t goin away until Christ returns.
As if there would ever be a different result?
The Muslims that are primarily engaged in the killing are also the ones exporting the evil thereof. We’ve left Iraq’s neighbor Iran alone for too long, i.e. the world’s largest state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, and they are still metastasizing. Using Obama’s cut-and-run strategy will be the death of us.
Not if we do what Cheney said, “Bomb, bomb, bomb; bomb, bomb Iran!” No boots on the ground needed. Just 1 great big huge message, with a warning.
McCain said that, not Cheney.
Israel went through this for years...Saddam was gleefully paying the suicide bombers families.
I agree with you but I wonder how many of these barbarians have already infiltrated through the open southern border and are just waiting to attack our malls in this manner? Seems to me a sudden attack on several malls simultaneously isn’t really that hard to pull off.
I’m sorry for my previous post I put it in the wrong thread. I’m using my tablet and somehow messed it up.
The Iragui’s are sure glad America pulled out and they can party.
If I had a dollar for every time I did something like this, I would be one rich, little hummingbird!
It is almost getting commonplace to hear of yet another attack by the "jihadies" in some part of the world.
Religion of Peace - NO!
Cult of Violence and Subjugation - YES!
Unfortunately Obama has grounded most of our Air Forces, emasculated the Army and Navy and the Marines, stalwarts though they are are just not powerful enough to run a multi front war on their own.
Whoops, getting old!
Me too, but it sure beats the alternative!
I have this Nexus 7 tablet with tabs galore opening up. That’s what I get for using a Google device. Lol.
Going into Iraq to get Sadam was a big mistake— I knew it from the get-go. The end results prove it... Should have targeted Iran instead—oh well. Stupidity reigns supreme in Wash, DC.
