10 killed in Iraq attacks

Aug 24 2013, 7:06pm CDT | by IANS

Baghdad, Aug 25 (IANS) At least 10 people were killed and 30 got injured in separate bombing and shooting incidents across Iraq Saturday, police said.

Baghdad, Aug 25 — At least 10 people were killed and 30 got injured in separate bombing and shooting incidents across Iraq Saturday, police said.

Five people were killed and 11 wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near a crowded medical centre in Diyala province's capital city Baquba, some 65 km northeast of here, Xinhua reported citing a police source.

In another incident, three people were killed and 11 wounded in a roadside bomb explosion at a popular market in Sadiyah town, some 60 km north of Baquba, the source added.

A group of gunmen shot dead a policeman near his house in Maqdadiyah city, some 40 km northeast of Baquba, the police source said.

In Iraq's capital Baghdad, gunmen shot dead an employee of the Sunni endowment in a drive-by shooting while he was in his car in the predominantly Sunni district of Adhamiyah, said a police officer who did not wish to be named.

Three people were wounded when a bomb planted in a parked car in Fallhjah city, some 50 km west of Baghdad, went off, a police source said.

Colonel Ibrahim al-Hamdani, police chief of Hamam Alil town, escaped with wounds after twin roadside bomb explosions near his convoy near Mosul, which is some 400 km north of here, a police source said.

Four policemen were also wounded as the blasts caused damage to two police vehicles, the source said.

Iraq is witnessing its worst eruption of violence in five years, which raised fears that the country is sliding back to a full-blown civil conflict that peaked in 2006 and 2007, when the monthly death toll sometimes exceeded 3,000.

Every week, The WorldPost asks an expert to shed light on a topic driving headlines around the world. Today, we turn to Syria and the danger of the Islamic State militant group.

Transcript as follows: A broken clock is right twice a day. And even a president not given to truthfulness occasionally is candid. One such blue moon occurred yesterday when Barack Obama responded to questions about what his administration was going to do about the jihadist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria by saying, “We don’t have a strategy yet.” Regrettably, the same applies to other unraveling international crises. We don’t have a strategy yet for Russia’s inv ...

The Invisible President

Aug 29 2014 2:14pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

I was at the gym, minding my own business, when the President took over all of the televisions in the room to make his big announcement: The plan is...that there is no plan. At first, I wasn't even sure it was him. Here was this old man, hunched over in a khaki suit from a Nantucket beach wedding, gripping the lectern as if it were a walker. He was grandfatherly in his passivity. Looking at him, I had the ...
