Overdosing on death 

Buried right at the very bottom of a "New York Times" piece - if terrorists in Iraq were digging, they would have already emerged on the other side of the globe (link requires registration):
On Saturday, during a funeral for children who died in the bombing on Wednesday, a unit of the Iraqi police stopped a suspicious-looking man approaching the funeral procession and discovered that he was wearing a suicide vest filled with explosives and ball bearings, the American command reported Sunday.

An explosives team disarmed the man, a Libyan, and no one was hurt, according to the American military.

"The bomber was high on drugs and is being treated for the potential overdose," said Col. Joseph DiSalvo, an American commander. The bomber, he said, "came here to kill the grieving parents of the children who were killed on Wednesday."

"I cannot imagine a worse crime."
Really, it's all about the American occupation of Iraq, which has inflamed feelings in Iraq itself and across the Muslim world. Which is why foreign Sunnis are coming to Iraq to join an organization led by a Jordanian so they can blow up children, and then blow-up their parents, while drugged up to their eyeballs. Clear?

The headline writer at UPI hasn't got it quite right when he or she writes that "Shiite leader says bombings are civil war". Cleric and member of parliament Sheikh Jalal al-Din al-Saghir is saying that "what is truly happening, and what shall happen, is clear: a war against the (Shiites)." And it is a war alright, but not really a civil one, in that Shia are being targeted mostly by foreign jihadis, not Iraqi Sunnis.

You see, boys and girls, Al Qaeda doesn't like democracy, where majority elects their government, and they certainly don't like the Shia, who are heretics and apostates. But it's all America's fault.
