Latest Bombing in Baghdad


This one targeted “day laborers looking for work.” At least 57 murdered.

Would someone in Europe or on the Left (do I repeat myself?) please explain how slaughtering innocent working men can be seen as “resistance to foreign occupation”? 

Would someone explain why these mass murders elicit no outrage against those responsible: those ordering the killings and supplying the weapons? 

Does someone want to explain why stopping such Muslim-on-Muslim killings is not as imperative as, say, stopping the Muslim-on-Muslim killings in Dafur?

Does someone want to explain how the withdrawal of American forces would do anything other than empower those dispatching the suicide-bombers and make it more likely that they will fulfill their ambitions?
