Meanwhile

The war in Lebanon and the liquid terror scare seems to have effectively drawn people's attention away from Iraq. But life hasn't changed there at all.

Attack outside Shia mosque kills 35

A suicide bomber today killed at least 35 people in an attack outside Iraq's most revered Shia mosque.

The bomber blew himself up while being patted down by policemen near the Imam Ali mosque in the holy city of Najaf, home to the tomb of Muhammad's cousin and son-in-law.
...
"Before I reached the checkpoint, only a few meters from the shrine, I heard a huge explosion. Something hit me on the head and I fell. I couldn't hear for a while but I saw bodies and human flesh everywhere," Mr Hassan, 51, told the Associated Press from his hospital bed.


And those Iranians are spinning on their axid of evil, ready to embrace terror in all its forms.

Iran Condemns Blast in Najaf

"Such barbaric acts carried out on the eve of the birthday anniversary of Imam Ali - the first Imam of Shiites -- (PBUH) are meant to hurt the spirit and feelings of the world Muslims, Shiites in particular, undermine Iraqi government, weaken national unity in that country and sow discord among the Muslim Shiites and Sunnites," Asefi said according to a Foreign Ministry statement.

He also said that confrontation and campaign against terrorism requires a realistic approach, "and since war, threat and bloodshed have become institutionalized traits of the terrorists and some belligerent governments, the only way to put an end to this undesirable and annoying situation passes through the reinvigoration of the legal-security role of the international community and the United Nations.

There you have it. Iran is a terrorist rogue state. You can really tell because of their support for action from the UN, a known terrorist organization.

SO, what's happening in "The Other Iraq?"

Gunmen storm Kurdish offices in southern Iraq

Gunmen angered by criticism of a Shi'ite cleric ransacked offices of President Jalal Talabani's Kurdish party in southern Iraq on Friday, while hundreds in Basra took to the streets in protest.

Have you seen the Other Iraq?

It's spectacular.

It's peaceful.

Welcome to Iraqi Kurdistan.
Where democracy has been practiced for over a decade. It's not a dream.
It's the other Iraq.

Well, we can't have that, now can we? So, of course, gunmen are sent to make sure that there is no peace in any part of Iraq. We can't have free speech. We must behead all those who insult Islam. Boy, it's a good thing we invaded. Now Iraqis don't have to live in fear.
