One of the deadliest attacks in Iraq

It doesn't get much messier than this:

BAGHDAD (AP) — A flurry of bombings in Baghdad killed 26 people Sunday, and officials said the death toll from a giant suicide truck blast that devastated the market of a Shiite town north of the capital a day earlier could be more than 130.

Officials earlier had said Saturday's bombing in the town of Armili killed 115 people, one of the deadliest attacks in Iraq in months. The blast suggested Sunni insurgents are moving further north to strike in less protected regions beyond the U.S. security crackdown in Baghdad and on the capital's northern doorstep.

But thank God that they now have the freedom to go out and vote for a US-puppet government once every 4 years.

Nothing says freedom like hot shrapnel in a busy marketplace.
