    Iraq - Welcome to civil war, thanks to Bush and Blair

    From MSNBC:

    Religious and political leaders scrambled Thursday to halt a descent into all-out civil war after the destruction of a Shiite shrine sparked the worst sectarian violence the country has seen since the fall of Saddam Hussein, with scores of people killed in Baghdad in the past 24 hours. In one of the worst incidents, gunmen pulled factory workers off buses northeast of Baghdad and killed 47 of them, a provincial council member said.The victims were traveling in three buses when they were stopped at a checkpoint in the Nahrawan area, about 12 miles south of Baqouba, said Dhari Thuban, a member of the Diyala Provincial Council. The buses were burned and their passengers killed, he said.The motive for the killing was not immediately clear.Residents told police that the bullet-riddled bodies were found around midday behind a brick factory, the Interior Ministry said. The victims, who ranged in age between about 20 and 50, were dressed in civilian clothes and their deaths appeared recent, the ministry’s Maj. Falah al-Mohamadawi told the Associated Press.

    Bush and Blair supporters should hang their heads in shame for what they have allowed to happen; with their support, Iraq has descended into civil war, oh, and, Polly Toynbee, you still owe the British public some answers.
