30 killed in Iraq attacks

Jun 16 2013, 4:54pm CDT | by

Baghdad, June 17 (IANS) A series of car bombings killed 30 people in different cities of Iraq, reported BBC citing the police and medics Sunday.

Baghdad, June 17 — A series of car bombings killed 30 people in different cities of Iraq, reported BBC citing the police and medics Sunday.

Most of the attacks occurred in the cities with a high concentration of Shia Muslims. These included the cities of Kut, Najaf, Mahmoudiya, Nasiriya and Basra.

Five people were killed in Basra city when two car bombs went off almost at the same time in a market in the city centre. Another car bomb killed at least seven people in the holy city of Najaf. In Kut, two car bombs targeted an industrial area and a gathering of construction workers.

Sunni Muslims in the country accuse Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki-led government of discriminating against them, a claim Iraqi government denies.

Last month was the bloodiest in Iraq since June 2008, with 1,045 civilians and security officials killed.

Obama wants a 'mulligan' on Iraq

Oct 22 2014 7:10pm CDT | Source: WND

In golf, Obama’s favorite pastime, the “mulligan” has become SOP in friendly games. A mulligan is a stroke that is replayed (due to bad luck or a blunder) from the spot of the previous stroke without penalty. The result is that the hole is scored as if the errant shot had never been made. Now the president expects the country to give him a mulligan, or a do-over, on Iraq. It isn’t happening. First there is that little matter of the status-of-forces agreement, SOFA ...

Leon Panetta Criticizes Obama For Sending 'Wrong Message To The World' On Syria

Oct 7 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is criticizing President Barack Obama for leaning toward, then deciding against military action against Syria for its use of chemical weapons. "By failing to respond, it sent the wrong message to the world," Panetta says in a new book in which he reveals his differences with the president over the decision to withdraw completely from Iraq in 2011. In August 2012, Obama said the U.S. would reconsider its ...

Leon Panetta, first horseman of the Hillary-pocalypse

Oct 6 2014 2:22pm CDT | Source: Big Government

In response to Are You Ready For Hillary-Krieg? : I'd say good ol' Leon Panetta is riding in the vanguard of that Hillary-krieg, doing the important work of setting up an implicit contrast between Madame Secretary and the semi-retired amateur currently keeping the Oval Office warm for her.  Panetta's got a book to flog, and USA Today, that Happy Hunting Grounds of the bullet point, offers a few highlights: • By not pushing the Iraqi govern ...

Amidst Claims of Intelligence Failure, Has Obama Found the Key To Defeating ISIS? (Or Is That An Illusory Goal?)

Oct 3 2014 12:06pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Has the Obama administration at last found the key to defeating Isis? The president promised as much after his long period of developing a strategy. But it's not at all clear that the administration's embattled national security apparatus has in fact identified the most important set of targets. Let's get to that critical issue in a moment. Meanwhile, Obama has engaged in some finger-pointing suggesting that he and his advisors are the victim of an intelligence failure. To wh ...

HuffPo Authors: Climate Change to Blame for Rise of ISIS

Oct 1 2014 3:21pm CDT | Source: Big Government

A read-it-to-believe-it column in the Huffington Post is demanding that each American do more to stop the looming threat of the Islamic State-- by recycling. Arguing a direct correlation between droughts in Syria and the rise of Islamist extremism, the authors blame climate change for the terrorist group's advance in the Middle East.

5 Things You Need to Know About the President's Rush to War in Iraq and Syria

Sep 22 2014 2:57pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

A terrible situation in Iraq and Syria may soon get worse. This week both the House and the Senate rushed to pass a bill authorizing the president to train and arm so-called "moderate" Syrian rebels. CREDO members reported pouring well over 3,000 calls into their representatives and senators. But, in the end, the majority of Democrats joined with Republicans to rubberstamp the president's proposal. The Islamic State of Iraq and Sy ...
