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.

The Challenges in Defeating ISIS

Aug 27 2014 1:11pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Containing and ultimately defeating ISIS will require both short and long-term response. ISIS expansion has been made possible by political conditions in Syria and Iraq, ethnic-religious/sectarian divisions and violence and terror in the region, and the failures of the US and international community. Bashar al-Assad's unprincipled and disproportionate military response to the "threat" of the democratization wave, the Arab Spring, with the sla ...

The unseen evil of ISIS

Aug 22 2014 2:29pm CDT | Source: Big Government

The Boston Globe headlines its editorial on the hideous murder of American journalist James Foley "Beheading of Foley Exposes True Nature of 'Islamic State.'" I'm sorry, guys, but putting the name of the new caliphate into scare quotes is too precious by half.  It's not a euphemism, it's their name, and thousands of Muslims from around the world are pouring into their ranks.  You can't ma ...

The Media and John McCain: How Someone Always Wrong Is Always on TV

Aug 19 2014 12:52pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Last month, Jon Stewart challenged John McCain to a "Wrong Off," betting that all the times Senator McCain has been wrong about, well, anything, far outnumbers the times Stewart has been proven wrong. I thought about that, when John McCain was on a Sunday talk show last weekend (State of the Union on CNN), this time as some kind of supposed expert on Iraq. The network, as pretty much all the other networks have, gave him an unf ...

Aug 13 2014 2:23am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON (AP) — Little of the impassioned debate that fractured lawmakers last year over possible military intervention in Syria is happening now as American warplanes strike extremist targets in Iraq. Almost a week into the Obama administration's emergency action in northern Iraq, the campaign is attracting surprisingly broad bipartisan support. Republicans have issued several I-told-you-so sta ...

Evidence: Obama warned ISIS would explode

Aug 12 2014 6:57pm CDT | Source: WND

WASHINGTON – President Obama has insisted the intelligence community didn’t foresee the rapid rise of the Islamic State, and that’s why it’s now a well-funded, organized army of an estimated 10,000 that has taken over large portions of Iraq and killed thousands, including children who have been beheaded. However, his administration had warnings of the rapid rise of Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, earlier this year and in 2010. Four years ago, the intelligence community obtained a documen ...

Aug 11 2014 12:22pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Friday announced his decision to launch limited airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq, a move that was largely met with bipartisan support from congressional lawmakers. But there's one prominent member of Congress who hasn't had much to say at all about the airstrikes: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The libertarian-leaning Republican, a potential 2016 presidential contender, has long been skeptical of entangling ...
