At least 55 killed as violence slams Iraq


June 3, 2012 - Iraq is again slammed with bombings today. Mohammed Tawfeeq (CNN) notes "a series of attacks" in Karbala, Baghdad and Taji. BBC News focuses on a truck bombing in Diwaniya where the death toll has reached "at least 25" with another forty injured. AP notes the truck used in the bombing was a vegetable truck. Alsumaria reports on Diwaniya and agrees at least 25 have died but places the number injured at 70 and it also reports that the cent of city has been closed to all traffic. At least seventy injured is probably accurate because Yang Lina (Xinhua) reports 75 injured. Meanwhile RT is reporting the death toll in the Diwaniya bombing has risen to 40. AFP observes, "The blast came just hours after near-simultaneous car bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims on the outskirts of the central shrine city of Karbala killed four people."...

At least 55 killed as violence slams Iraq

The Common Ills

June 3, 2012

Iraq is again slammed with bombings today. Mohammed Tawfeeq (CNN) notes "a series of attacks" in Karbala, Baghdad and Taji.  BBC News focuses on a truck bombing in Diwaniya where the death toll has reached "at least 25" with another forty injured.  AP notes the truck used in the bombing was a vegetable truck. Alsumaria reports on Diwaniya and agrees at least 25 have died but places the number injured at 70 and it also reports that the cent of city has been closed to all traffic.  At least seventy injured is probably accurate because Yang Lina (Xinhua) reports 75 injured.  Meanwhile RT is reporting the death toll in the Diwaniya bombing has risen to 40.   AFP observes, "The blast came just hours after near-simultaneous car bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims on the outskirts of the central shrine city of Karbala killed four people." Alsumaria notes of the Karbala bombing that it hit at the popular market where fruits and vegetables are sold, it left 11 dead and forty-five injured (according to police sources) and that millions of Shi'ites are expected to travel through Karbala this week to celebrate the birth of the 12th or Hidden Imam (9th century).    Reuters adds, "Earlier in the day, two roadside bombs targeting Shi'ite pilgrims killed four people and wounded 21 near the central Iraqi city of Kerbala, hospital and police sources said" while AP notes, "In Baghdad, a roadside bomb exploded next to a police patrol in the Sunni-dominated Ghazaliya neighborhood, injuring three policemen and two civilians, a police officer and a health official said."


Two things are missing in Iraq.  First, you have no heads to the security ministries because Nouri's still refusing to nominate people for those positions.  Doing so would mean he couldn't control the ministires. Yes, he was supposed to have nominated people and had them approved by the Parliament before the end of December 2010.  Per the Iraqi Constitution, his failure to do so should have meant that another person was named prime minister-designate and that person given 30 days to name a full Cabinet (if the Cabinet is named by Nouri and confirmed by the Parliament, the person becomes prime minister, if the nominees aren't named or don't pass the Parliament then a new person is selected as prime minister-designate).  As violence continues to increase, is everyone still willing to pretend it's okay that Nouri hasn't nominated people to head these ministries all this time later?

Back in late December 2010 and January 2011, the US press was making excuses for Nouri and swearing that the security ministries would have heads in a matter of weeks.  It's five months shy of two years.  Anyone want to take some accountability for that?

When you consider all the damage the US press has done in Iraq maybe it's a good thing that the other missing factor in Iraq currently is US press outside of AP.  Everyone else headed for Syria.  Well, Tim Arango's still present but the New York Times apparently isn't interested in Iraq coverage.  Apparently, nothing's happening in Iraq.

Over 400 deaths last month by the United Nations figures.

But the New York Times feels there's nothing to see in Iraq.

Again, so much damage done.
