War in Iraq far from over What others say

Posted: Monday, March 08, 2004

The Ashoura carnage the bloodiest day that Iraq has known in the past year confirms that war did not end with the fall of Saddam Hussein. It only changed shape. ...

In Iraq, international Islamic terrorism has found itself an ideal battleground. It can aim for easy victories by simply increasing chaos, it can bog down Western coalitions or push them to leave. ...

The attacks were, intentionally or not, a response to talks on the Constitution finished the night before by Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds and secular Iraqis. To push back a possible return to order, terrorists have placed their bets on civil war.

The massacre of Shiite pilgrims on their holiest day at their places of worship can only mean that Allah's extremists hope to ignite the fuse of what is a time bomb in Iraq, thereby destabilizing the whole of the Middle East.
