5. Car bombings kill dozens, injure more than 100 in Baghdad
Source: Washington Post

BAGHDAD - Six car bombs detonated across Baghdad on Sunday and a suicide bomber exploded a car in nearby Fallujah, killing a total of 37 people and wounding more than 100 in the deadliest day of violence in Iraq since the United States announced the end of combat operations three weeks ago.

The scope of Sunday's attacks -- especially a pair of simultaneous car bombings -- illustrated how uncertain the security situation remains as the United States hands over more security responsibility to its Iraqi counterparts and a political void deepens each day that Iraqi leaders fail to form a new government .

Traffic snarled in parts of Baghdad as Iraqi police tightened checkpoints after the twin car bombings struck at 10 a.m. in the Mansour and Kathumya neighborhoods, killing 29 people and wounding 111, according to Iraqi security authorities.

Witnesses said the booby-trapped vehicle in Mansour targeted a busy market area near an office of the Asiacell phone company and a popular restaurant. Ten people died. . . .

Earth to George Bush and Dick Cheney: This will NOT end well. I marched against the war in Vietnam in 1969-70, and against this atrocious war in 2002-03.

I take no pleasure in noting that I was right both times.
