Lest we forget . . . .

More carnage in Iraq. Apparently things seem to be un-surge-itizing a bit. That's okay, I'm sure our Wrong Wing dead-enders will tell us any moment that Victory is right around the corner. Now if they'll just tell us what the hell a Victory in Iraq is.

Bombings across Iraq kill dozens

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Militants in three Iraqi cities set off deadly explosions Monday, killing at least 39 people, government officials said.

At least 32 people were killed in a triple bombing in Baghdad, and five were killed in a suicide attack in Baquba believed to have been launched by a teenage girl. In Samarra, two police officers died in a roadside bombing.

The Baghdad attack began around 8 a.m. in the northeastern part of the city when a bomb inside a parked car exploded in a marketplace in the Kasrah section of the Adhamiya neighborhood, an Interior Ministry official said.

Soon after, a second car bomb went off. When a crowd gathered around the exploded cars, a bomber wearing an explosives-laden vest detonated in their midst, the official said."
I guess we'll know a Victory time when they see it, eh?

With all the excitement and joy that's taken place in America over the last week, it's easy to forget that Bush's tragic, catastrophic debacle in Iraq is still taking human lives, and a lot of them. Let's hope that President-elect Obama comes through with his most important campaign promise, and ends this tragitastrobacle in Iraq. It would be great for America, great for Iraq, great for the world, and (incidentally) great for our nosediving economy.
