Don’t let the lack of reports fool you. Iraq is still very unstable, and seeing some very deadly days:
Six car bombs exploded across Baghdad Monday, killing at least 34 people and wounding scores, police said, after a spate of arrests targeting Sunni Arab fighters raised tensions in the Iraqi capital.
A blast at a popular market in eastern Baghdad’s Shi’ite Sadr City slum killed at least 10 people and wounded 65.
Why aren’t we hearing about this? It’s hard to say. Perhaps it could be that there is so much going on that the media’s ADD is kicking into overdrive. Your guess is as good as mine, but we need these stories out there.
The media will turn their attention to Iraq one the troops start getting pulled out. When that starts then stories like this will be plastered on every network. It will serve as some sort of “proof” that Obama is destroying Iraq. But right now they can still push the meme that “the surge worked” by kicking these stories under the rug.
