“Two large vehicle bombs exploded in central Iraq over a 24-hour period, killing at least 75 Iraqis as many of them were applying for jobs with the new security forces, U.S. and Iraqi officials said early Wednesday.” This from the Washington Post.
Jihad was in the air:
By afternoon, soldiers were still lined up near the police station, their guns pointed at men and women who threw rocks and cursed at them. Periodically, one side would charge the other and scuffles would break out.
“There is no God but Allah. America is the enemy of God,” the protesters chanted. “Hell to the Americans. Hell to the Jews.”
