Not so much. While the bastard whines for more time, people keep dying. Dying for NO GOOD REASON.
A spate of grisly attacks believed carried out by Sunni extremists killed dozens of Shiites around Baghdad over the past two days, just ahead of a planned huge march of devout Shiites through Sunni Arab heartlands to the remnants of a revered Shiite shrine.
A rush-hour bomb killed 25 people this morning in the largely Shiite neighborhood of Bayaa in southwest Baghdad, an Interior Ministry official said. Recently, the Mahdi Army, the militia loyal to the militant Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr, has escalated the violence against Sunnis in the area.
Ten people were killed in a bombing on Wednesday night in the mostly Shiite neighborhood of Kadhimiya in northwestern Baghdad.
And the police said they found up to 20 decapitated corpses — a hallmark of Sunni extremists — in an insurgent-dominated area south of the capital.
The attacks came ahead of the rally called by Mr. Sadr urging Shiites to march to Samarra to protest the recent bombing that destroyed twin golden minarets of the city’s Askariya shrine. The shrine’s dome was demolished in a bombing last year that unleashed a fury of sectarian killings and pushed the country toward civil war.
