Another Monday morning, as the war gets worse...

A frightening look at the future of Iraq...
There is a really serious story hiding Between The Lines in this article, one that hints at the inevitable future of Iraq, encapsulated in this little nutshell.

The death toll from a suicide truck bombing in a remote village in northern Iraq rose to around 150 on Sunday, making it one of the deadliest single bombings, if not the deadliest, since the 2003 invasion. The attack, in the impoverished Shiite Turkmen village of Amerli, 100 miles north of Baghdad in Salahuddin Province, has highlighted fears that Sunni insurgents facing military crackdowns in Baghdad and Diyala Province are simply directing their attacks to areas outside the concentration of American troops. The police in Amerli said that the truck used in Saturday’s attack concealed 4.5 tons of explosives (sure seems to be an unlimited supply of explosives in Iraq, wonder whose trademark is stamped on them...) beneath watermelons. The blast leveled dozens of houses and shops, trapping and killing many residents beneath the rubble. No group claimed immediate responsibility for the attack, but Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the jihadist group Islamic State in Iraq, issued an audiotape warning Iran to stop supporting Iraq’s Shiites. The tape, posted on a Web site, said, “We are giving the Persians, and especially the rulers of Iran, a two-month period to end all kinds of support for the Iraqi Shiite government and to stop direct and indirect intervention.”
He added, “Otherwise, a severe war is waiting for you.”
In this one sentence we see the future of Iraq....this guy's not bluffing. If we think this war is severe now, wait until all the warmongering (jihadist) fundamentalist Islamists on both sides of the Shia/Sunni chasm decide to loose the dogs of war on each other. Only then will we realize just how violent this Bush War will become. What we have seen so far is a firecracker compared to the bomb about to explode. And our military will be just another easy target, bumbling around like an impotent, half-blind giant, swinging at fleas with a baseball bat, and breaking our own bones in the process. Anyone who thinks the Iranian Shiites (notice how this Sunni Arab, Abu Omar, calls them "Persians") are going to back away from helping the Iraqi Shiites, is ignoring more than a millennium of history.
