Three suicide bombers carried out a car bomb attack that killed 41 and injured over 200 in Baghdad today. The blasts targeted foreign embassies and happened near the Iranian, Egyptian, and Germany buildings. This attack followed a few other attacks of late, including one on the Green Zone in the capital.

Authorities are blaming the escalation in violence on the recent parliamentary elections. Certainly unfortunate that innocent people have to die over political tensions.

Right, innocent victims always seem to have been there from the beginning of time. The attacks remind me of the Israeli underground guerrillas during World War II attacking the British whenever they could. Wonder whether the bomb blasts in Iraq may have to do with similar revolutionary patriots, still mad at the establishment for allowing the States to invade and destroy Iraq, and who are dedicated to destroy everything that has been rebuilt by the West.
