Meanwhile in Iraq

07.18.06

Remember Iraq? They must be getting kinda antsy over there with the fact that they’re getting zero media coverage these days, because today’s publicity stunt took the form of a suicide bombing that killed 59 people:

The explosion, some 50-100 metres from the gold-domed Shi’ite shrine of Kufa, tore through the van shortly after it had pulled out of the busy market with a group of labourers.

“A man driving a Kia van with an Iraqi accent came and said: ‘I need labourers’. After the labourers got on and packed the vehicle he exploded the car,” said witness Nasir Faisal.

Pretty horrific way to jump up and down and scream “hey, look at me!”.

And 41 others sunday morning at a market and then 15 others later in the afternoon.

They must find the lack of media attention somewhat frustrating.

My prediction? They’ll blame it on the Jews!

And people deny I’m clairvoyant….

Ah, but here’s the rub; I knew you knew, but knew you’d no way of knowing I’d know.

Ya know?
