Baghdad's Burning Baby

No, no, everything's terrific...the Coalition Forces are doing a great job...we're winning the hearts and minds...democracy is flourishing ...yada yada yada. Dumb fuck Americans. Here's the real beat on the street - "We woke up this morning to news that men wearing Iraqi security uniforms walked in and detonated explosives, damaging the mosque almost beyond repair. It’s heart-breaking and terrifying. There has been gunfire all over Baghdad since morning. The streets near our neighborhood were eerily empty and calm but there was a tension that had us all sitting on edge. We heard about problems in areas like Baladiyat where there was some rioting and vandalism, etc. and several mosques in Baghdad were attacked. I think what has everyone most disturbed is the fact that the reaction was so swift, like it was just waiting to happen."

How surprising. Go here for the real deal - girl blogger in Baghdad

"Who do you call to protect you from the New Iraq’s security forces?"

I think that the Iraqis need the NRL so that they can take out their tribal tensions without RPGs and AK47s
