Meanwhile in Iraq...
    #4615007 - 09/03/05 02:15 AM (11 years, 1 month ago)

Good to see all the money that could have been spent helping New Orleans has been put to "use" invading Iraq...

Sectarian fighting among Shia and Sunnis spread across Iraq amid renewed warnings that the country is sliding into civil war.

Tensions over the country's new constitution - approved by the Shia and Kurds but rejected by Sunnis - as well as continuing anger surrounding the stampede death of almost 1,000 Shia pilgrims spilt into violence.

After months of attacks on Shia targets by Sunni insurgents designed to start, the government claimed, an internecine religious conflict, the first signs came of a Shia backlash.

A young girl was killed yesterday in a gun battle in Baghdad that followed a march by hundreds of Shias on the al-Aima bridge where most of the stampede deaths had taken place.

Soldiers guarding the bridge opened fire on the demonstrators. Sunnis on the other side of the River Tigris, believing they were under attack from the Shia marchers then opened fire themselves, in turn drawing fire from Shia gunmen.

Two separate blasts in a Sunni neighbourhood led to two deaths and Sunni residents said they had been subjected to sniper fire and petrol bomb attacks.

Sunnis in the British-controlled south, which is also predominantly British, say the local police force has been heavily infiltrated by Shia militias and were actively encouraging a sectarian campaign.
An American journalist researching the allegations was recently shot dead after being taken by men in police uniforms.

Ali Mohammed, a Sunni schoolteacher, said "the attacks have got much worse. The police even come into our mosques and steal money and valuables."

Good to see you Alex. Keep fighting war instead of wars.

The most insane Bush apologists on this board are whining New Orleans wasn't the US tax payers' dollars problem, but somehow support the slashing of the funding in New Orleans FOR Iraq. I suppose it's only fitting their idealog coincide with their Lord's. Let's rip apart all domestic funding and policies and contribute all we have to overseas wars.
