Since people usually post current events here, I'm surprised this one hasn't been posted yet:

At least 75 reported dead in Najaf

I saw that. I think it is a very horrible thing that was done. I personally feel Baathists are responsible. I also think it will prove to be a big mistake. The Shiite majority is not going to take to kindly to whoever blew up their most holy site, and killed their highest ranking cleric. This was one of the sites that we purposefully avoided, even though people were shooting at as from it.

Yeah, I found out about it while I was at lunch.

NPR is interviewing people on the street there who say 'the Jews' did it.

I'll go read your link now.

I won't even hazard a guess at who is responsible. Could be any number of culprits.

We have avoided Najaf, though, at the request of the locals. That's the 'sacred city' where our helicopter knocked over the flag and everyone went apeshit.

Anybody have any idea how many sacred cities various Islamic sects have? There sure seem to be a lot of them.

The target was the cleric. Isn't this the same guy they tried to kill last week with the exploding gas cylinder?

I must have missed that one.

I just remember the one who died during bomb-making class.
