    This is not all that surprising. Iraq has been experiencing a large amount of terrorism this year.

    Oh dear, it looks like our war against them has allowed them to adapt and improve their training... Whoops. Sorry Iraq.

    Strategic attacks on targets is the thing to do during Ramadan. It was bound to happen. It will be interesting to see how the current government responds to the increased attacks.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    We did it in Japan and Germany but I'll agree that the Arab countries are a different story.

    All I can say is: Holy ****.



    Looks like Iraq may still have some problems.

    I vote that we let the Iraqis sort them out.

    I'm sure that Iran will be glad to jump in, if necessary.

    You did it in Japan and Germany after you carpet bombed the crap out of them for years... and starved the population. So yes there is a difference.

    Does anyone honestly think this wouldn't have happened if we didn't invade? It would be only a matter of time before Saddam fell, and after that terrorism, sectarianism and civil war would have occurred anyway. The difference is that we didn't sit by and watch it happen.

    It's beginning to look like Donald Rumsfeld knew what he was talking about when he said that freedom is messy.

    He could have added: Especially when it's given to you by men with guns.
