BAGHDAD A series of car bombs exploded across Iraqs capital Saturday night, killing at least 52 people in a day of violence that saw militants storm a university in the countrys restive Anbar province and take dozens hostage, authorities said.
The attacks in Baghdad largely focused on Shiite neighborhoods, underscoring the sectarian violence striking at Iraq years after a similar wave nearly tore the country apart after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. With U.S. troops gone, Iraq finds itself fighting on fronts across the country, as separate clashes in the northern city of Mosul left 21 police officers and 38 Sunni militants dead, officials said.

Obama has already launched a blue-ribbon panel and an emergency focus group to develop an appropriate hashtag!
There is no cure for the middle east except nuke them all every last one of them even the rare good one or two
They had their chance for a peaceful modern country...
Now they can live like savages
What a mess and a terrible waste of American lives in that country. I am sad we ever entered that hell hole. Muzzies are useless . They are just murdering savages. Not worth one civilized human.
Oh I thought the US troops were the problem and everything would be fine between these peace loving religionists once those bad Americans were gone. Islam is a religion of peace you know (that’s sarcasm folks).
What a waste that war was. Nothing but savages in that part of the world.
My local newspaper message boards confirm: Bush’s fault.
Four thousand plus American troops lives in Iraq for what?
"If it wasn't for Israel, the entire Middle East can fall into a giant sink-hole for all I care."
My sentiments exactly. I have no compassion for 7th-century heathens who need to crap, shower, and shave.
I guess it is time for the Iraqi’s to “step up”. It is their country.
No matter what you do for or to a muslim, at the end of the day, you are still the infidel or Jew.
For what its worth, we could have stayed there fifty years and they would still be murdering each other.
We should have left once we toppled Sadaam's regime.
I’m not so sure now that removing Saddam was a good idea....All it did was empower Iran.
Like Detroit ?
I once had a conversation with a guy at work about the war in Iraq. He vehemently opposed it.
I asked him if we should fight that war over there, or over here.
