Another Bombing in Iraq…Over 127 Killed And Hundreds Wounded

From Baghdad comes a sobering report that a coordinated series of attacks in Baghdad killed more than 127 people and wounded hundreds on Tuesday. Five separate attacks created the worst wave of violence to strike the Iraqi capital in more than a month.

It is the third time in four months that a coordinated wave of bombers has defeated Baghdad’s security and dealt a blow to the Iraqi government’s claims to have made the country’s streets safer.[picapp align=”right” wrap=”true” link=”term=*&iid=7340992″ src=”d/e/4/0/Bombing_in_Iraq_e9b2.JPG?adImageId=8137299&imageId=7340992″ width=”234″ height=”176″ /]

The bombs detonated within minutes near the city’s main courthouse and the public works and finance ministries. The finance ministry had only recently moved to the site after its main headquarters was levelled by a truck bomb in August.

The President has condemned the bombings and has declared it as another attempt to topple the Iraq government, and to stifle peaceful progression of the nation.

I wonder, as we move our military forces into Afghanistan, how are we going to keep the peace in Iraq,or is this just a sign of what is to come when we evacuate the country…I guess only time will tell.

What do you think?
