Don't Panic!: How's that Iraq war going these days?

" width=

The casual savagery of life in Iraq never fails to shock me.

For example, Reuters reports that Iraq's government plans to kill all of the country's bores. They claim it’s part of an effort to fend off an outbreak of H1N1, the so-called swine flu.

I'm not sure if the mass murder of wallflowers, dullards and people who talk about work at dinner parties is going to stop the spread of flu. Even if it does work, it's still barbaric.

OK, scratch that. I just reread my notes. They're killing boars.

But still, violence in Iraq is shocking.

Last week, terrorists detonated three car bombs within minutes of each other on a commercial strip in Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood. Forty-one people were killed and at least 60 were injured. The bombs went off around 5 p.m., the area's peak shopping time.

The bombing wasn’t an isolated incident. Violence against civilians in Iraq is once again surging.
