Events in Iraq continue to validate the predictions we made here for years: that a stable democracy would never be founded because of opposition from pro-Sharia forces, that as soon as the Americans left the Sunnis and Shi’ites would be at each other’s throats, and more. Sunni/Shi’ite Jihad Update: “Iraq blast in mainly Shia area killed 2,” from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, February 3 (thanks to Twostellas):
A roadside bomb explosion has killed two civilians and injured three other people in the eastern Iraqi capital, Baghdad, police and health officials say….
The attack is the latest in a new spate of deadly bombings that have claimed dozens of lives across war-torn Iraq over the recent weeks.
The terrorist attacks have mainly targeted the majority Shia community and Iraqi security forces.
Sporadic high-profile bomb explosions have raised concerns about a rise in violence in Iraq.
They also pose a major challenge to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, whose coalition government took office last month.
