BAGHDAD Ten car bombs targeting Shiite neighborhoods in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, hit on Sunday morning. All 10 bombs went off within 40 minutes, starting from 9:30 a.m.
Forty-one civilians were killed and more than 100 others were wounded, according to security and medical officials. Ambulances rushed to hospitals and security forces tightened measures around checkpoints to search each passing car, creating a traffic jam.

Arabs will never be able to govern themselves.
I guess, then, the Iraqis should do something about it...no? It is their country.
Yes, and many suffered severe wounds as well.
Islam sure has a lot to be proud of.
We rebuilt schools, infrastructure, give girls the chance to get an education...
Did Allah hate his people this much? Makes you wonder.
4486 Americans died to give these people a chance.
It only took one to throw it all away.
What a waste of men and money. At least Hussein was a counter balance to Irrran. Ain’t hindsight wonderful?
Islam is a cancer on the face of the earth. It’s being allowed to metastasize by an extremely weak western civilization.
Liberals think they can “corrupt and coopt” it like they have done everything else.
they knew that before they went after him
the whole point is to destroy israel and us
and usher in the caliphate
Sad, but true. Some people, especially Arabs, are fit only to be ruled by despots.
Lesson learned...Never get involved in another intra-Arab squabble again, like we did in the first Gulf War.
And also, we need to gain our independence from any resources in that region...it isn’t worth it.
Good. Ungrateful crazy bastards deserve each other.
They miss The Butcher of Baghdad.
Europe's dream of promoting the euro as a competitor to the U.S. dollar may get a boost from SADDAM HUSSEIN. Iraq says that from now on, it wants payments for its oil in euros, despite the fact that the battered European currency unit, which used to be worth quite a bit more than $1, has dropped to about 82[cents]. Iraq says it will no longer accept dollars for oil because it does not want to deal "in the currency of the enemy."
Thousands! And we're still getting them from Aftganiscrap.
"Islam sure has a lot to be proud of. We rebuilt schools, infrastructure, give girls the chance to get an education... Did Allah hate his people this much? Makes you wonder."
Doesn't make me wonder. Some peoples just don't understand liberty or freedom of choice. Like someone said above, "some people just need despots to rule them". That's why I have always said that I'm a culturalist. Some are better than others in their interaction with civilized cultures.
But then, our "reality show" culture is going to pot, also. The only reality show I watch is the car cable channel, Velocity. BTW, I just purchased a 1958 Chevy Impala with fender skirts and a continental kit on the back. It's not show material, but a VERY clean driver with a recent rebuilt 348 with tri-power (remember tri-power? If so, you're probably one of the few on FR that does). The rest of the power train is also new, along with new suspension.
Awaiting it's delivery like a kid on Christmas morning. Knowing your age, thought you would appreciate my excitement. Want to buy a 2000 Corvette (only 51,000 miles & always garaged) so I can make up some of the cost for my retirement? Har!
Take care old Patriot...I still enjoy your posts. You always make sense and cut to the bone.
Not sure what you mean, Vet. If you're talking about the "community organizer", we were already scheduled to pull out of Iraq before he soiled the Oval Office.
The Iraqis just don't know how to deal with their new found freedom. Just doesn't work for their culture. They WILL revert to totalitarianism (probably Islamist). Aftganiscrap is even worse since they consist of countless local barbaric tribes that will never get together.
Don't get me wrong. I now believe we have lost so many good young men and some women in Iraq and not sure we should have deposed Saddam, other than bomb his WMD's.
Aftganiscrap with the Taliban that was supported by al-Qaeda was righteous, but they will never be able to govern themselves peacefully. It's against their religion that dictates their culture.
The middle east will always be so until some western nation decides to kill them all in whatever given country that attacks us again. And no, I don't care about collateral damage. Better their children than ours. Think Dresdan, Hamburg, Hiroshima, etc. It stopped those pri*cks, but killed a lot of civilians. Again, better them than us.
Sorry to sound so harsh, but I want my grand-children to grow up in a worry free world, even if our own socialists are screwing things up. Why we and Israel are allowing the crazy mullahs to develop nuclear weapons is beyond reason, not to mention North Korea.
“better them than us” Dam right.
You suppose they don’t think that way?
mozlums are not worth ONE American’s life.
Sunnis bombing Shi’ites probably.
Too late — we have a Petrodollar deal with the Saudis that makes us their mercenaries.
And the mind-boggling STUPIDITY of that idea still makes me want to throw up.
None of which was any of our business.
It was all so stupid, it's absolutely disgraceful.
