Today was yet another day from hell in Baghdad. All in all, three car bombs went off in the capital of Iraq. The bloodiest of them all, in Sadr city, was claimed by ISIS.
In that attack, at least 55 people were murdered. 60 others were injured.
Below a photo of the carnage:
Most inhabitants of Sadr City are Shiite Muslims, which is why they're targeted by ISIS, a radical Sunni terror group. ISIS considers Shiites fake Muslims or even apostates, which makes it -- according to the hateful theology of the Islamist group -- fair to kill them.
The sad fact of the matter is, of course, that most governments in the Middle East still have no clue how to deal with radical Islamic groups. Yes, some terrorists are arrested or killed, but they still pretend that it's more of a social, rather than a cultural and religious problem. As long as they deny the obvious -- that many Muslims in the Middle East are indoctrinated with radical Islamic beliefs -- they're fighting a losing battle, which means that we'll see many more bloody attacks like the one in Sadr City today.
I wonder if Obama will tweet about this - he is tweeting about his accomplishments, and ISIS is one of his more monumental achievements.
muzzards killing muzzards for not being muzzard enough. They need to be isolated in their own countries, and kept out of civilized countries. Then we won’t care what the hell they do to each other.
George W. Bush
The governments that knew how to deal with radical sunni islamists were run by Saddam Hussein, Qadaffi, Hosni Mubarak and Hafez Al Assad ( and now by Bashir Al Assad) -
Gee anyone see a pattern here
Most of these regimes were taken down by the West in the name of “ democracy” which is now revealed as a cynical lie
Egypts military pulled it out from the brotherhood and Assad is now the primary target of the globalists and their Saudi money
Gosh, I hope this doesn’t result in some sort of anti-mooselimb sentiment. It would be a shame if innocent mooselimbs were stigmatized by this attack.
Unlikely, as he will not go there to get donuts.
Inside joke, I spent a year across the river from Sadr City, and the joke was to go there to get donuts, needless to say that was the last place one would want to go.
Obama says he has ISIS contained.
