Iraq gets worse


by dj moonbat

Suicide bombers took out the offices of two different Kurdish parties in Irbil. Scores of people, including the regional governor, were killed.

The move seems clearly intended to fuel internecine hostilities, and unless the Kurds are an unusually stoic bunch, it may well succeed. Even if they resist the urge to lash out at (I'm assuming) the Sunni population, Irbil will be more unstable now, with politicians of two different parties and a sitting governor killed.

As bad as things are with our troops being killed nearly daily, the situation will become much worse if we see the advent of a three-way ethnic civil war. Let's hope that cooler heads prevail.
