BAGHDAD: Two suicide bombers posing as army recruits struck an Iraqi base just east of Baquba on Tuesday morning, killing at least 35 Iraqi recruits and wounding 63, according to the Iraqi police and medical officials in Diyala Province.
The attack came as Iraqi troops prepared for what their commanders predict will be a challenging fight to try to reclaim large areas of Diyala that remain sanctuaries for Salafist jihadist fighters and other anti-government guerrillas.
The bombers, wearing belts packed with explosives, waded into a crowd of more than 200 recruits just after 8 a.m. and detonated about 30 seconds apart in front of the headquarters of an Iraqi brigade where the recruits had gathered. The attack happened at the Saad military base, which is about six kilometers, or four miles, east of Baquba, the provincial capital."
If there weren't so many dead and severely maimed people left in the wake of this massive tragitastrobacle, one might think that reason and logic were the biggest losses of this horrific War on Iraq. Sadly, anything resembling collective sanity in the USofA is just another corpse that can be found in the blood-drenched streets of Baghdad.
