Bombings in Samarra

Al Askari Mosque - Wikipedia
87 dead, the Guardian counted last night. On NPR, American soldiers are interviewed as being shocked that grenades were being thrown at them from the Samarra police station. So civil war rattles into being in Iraq, even as America builds its nuclear reserve. A sad day for the world. Christ, have mercy.

I am unsurprised by the violent reaction to this despicable crime, because the fundamental dispute between Shiites and Sunnis outrageously spawns hatred, nonstop. I am unsurprised, therefore, by the reprisal attacks at Sunni mosques.

As a Shiite, I am shocked, however, at the murder of three Sunni journalists in Samarra.
