According to CNN, Iraqi police have found the bodies of at least 86 people who have been killed, execution-style. Many officials think that these killings were performed in a wave of sectarian reprisal slayings.
Incidentally, the mass killings include both Shiite and Sunni Iraqis, supports the idea that the country is on the brink of a civil war. Don't be fooled by what Condi is saying: this country really is in conflict.
Now, throw in 2300+ dead U.S. soliders and about 100,000 dead Iraqi civilians, and you've got an international disaster. It's odd, because I thought that the whole point of this Iraqi war was to 'spread peace and democracy abroad'. So much for that idea.
We've removed the Iron Fist of Saddam and replaced it with a gauntlet.
