A wave of bomb attacks hit Iraq over the weekend, as people celebrated the Eid al-Fitr festival marking the end of Ramadan, with more than 60 reported dead.

The BBC reported that 11 bombs targeted both Shiite and Sunni areas of the capital, Baghdad, hitting cafes, markets and restaurants in at least nine different districts.

A bomb also killed at least 10 people in Tuz Khurmato, north of the capital.

This Ramadan in Iraq is thought to have been one of the deadliest in years, with more than 670 people killed.

LOL Can’t sleep! Now everybody settle down here so I can get some rest.

OOOPS! I just remembered the Easter Sunday that I put big bunny ears on our Irish Setter and my son and I took her for a walk. People were laughing so hard that one girl fell off her bike. So we Christians DO cause harm after a long fast.

Well maybe it is - this new regime in Iraq is the result of Bush’s decisions.

Iraq is indeed in great devestation, and the violence is relentless.

Actually it was Bush’s fault somewhat. At the risk of sounding like a liberal we should have never invaded Iraq bad as Sadam Hussein was the country was a buffer against Iran and warring factions. Our military died in Iraq for what? Democracy and islam are incompatible and its time the political geniuses realize it.

We had it won until Big Brother took office. Iran was ready to toss out their crazies but he sided with the whack jobs running the country. A successful revolt in Iran would have been a game changer.

Try Easter ends with wave of attacks...Christmas ends with wave of attacks...Passover ends with wave of attacks.

They don't quite fit,do they? There's clearly something special about this "Religion of Peace".

We should have bought hussein (we did in the 80’s) and turned him toward Iran. You cannot bring freedom and liberty to islam... it will never happen... you cannot bring the light of truth into hell.
