And how that escalation is working:
BAGHDAD â€” Four large bombs exploded across Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 127 people and wounding scores as violence climbed toward levels seen before the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital began two months ago.
In the deadliest of the attacks, a parked car bomb detonated in a crowd of workers at the Sadriyah market in a mostly Shiite area of central Baghdad, killing at least 82 people and wounding 94, said Raad Muhsin, an official at Al-Kindi Hospital where the victims were taken.
A police official confirmed the toll, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.
But Baghdad is like any American town. Should the news devote the next 3 days of coverage to just this bombing, instead of Virginia Tech? I mean Virginia Tech is like a daily incident in Baghdad and since our countries compare so much in security, common sense would only dictate such.
