Bombings in Iraq striking markets, funeral kill 44

BAGHDAD (AP) — A wave of bombings across Iraq striking busy markets and a funeral north of Baghdad killed at least 44 people today, authorities said, as the country remains gripped by violence after al-Qaida-linked militants took control of two cities in western Anbar province. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks. Insurgent groups, mainly al-Qaida’s local branch and other Sunni militants, frequently target civilians in cafes and public areas, as well as Shiites and members of Iraqi security forces in an attempt to undermine confidence in the Shiite-led government and stir sectarian tensions.

Yeah, that whole war in Iraq was really worth all the lives and money it cost. I wonder when we'll be getting some of that oil revenue to pay for the continuing care of all the injured veterans?

Suggest removal:

Yeah, oil was supposed to pay for the war wasn't that what Bush said?
