Iraq is reeling over two seperate bombing incidents.
in the first one, terrorists set off bombs in two seperate mosques in Eastern Iraq,killing 74 people and injuring hundreds ABC News: Bombers Kill 74 at Two Mosques in Iraq
Later two massive vehicle bombs exploded this morning near the Hamra Hotel complex here that serves as a base for international journalists and several Western security firms, killing several Iraqi civilians.Car Bombs Targeting Baghdad Hotel Kill 8 Iraqis - Los Angeles Times
This second assualt was obviously aimed at the Western Media, with the idea of intensifying the negative tone of the stories being filed from Iraq by the resident journalists. Good move for Zarkawi and Zawahiri, at least in terms of strategy. Perception is reality, especially in this part of the world.
Want to bet they heard about John Murtha's(d-PA) move in the US House of Representatives to legislate an immediate pullout of troops fromIraq?ABC News: House GOP Seeks Quick Vote on Iraq Pullout
Interestingly enough, Murtha is being characterized by the MSM as a `hawk' when in fact he is on record in 2004 calling the Iraq war `unwinnable'.
