Seven Bombs in Baghdad Blasts Kill at Least 49

Seven bombs placed inside apartment buildings across Baghdad killed at least 49 people and decimated residential neighborhoods in an onslaught that Iraqi and U.S. security officials blamed on al Qaeda-linked militants.

The explosions are the second coordinated large-scale bombings in the last three days, fueling fears that insurgents are taking advantage of Iraq's post-election political vacuum to sow chaos and spiral the country back to civil war. In the last week, more than 100 people have died in numerous attacks around Baghdad alone.

No claim of responsibility has been made for the bombings this week, but a resurgence of al Qaeda — or other militant groups — capable of planning and carrying out such large-scale assaults casts doubt over Iraq's security situation and how the country will cope when U.S. troops begin their withdrawal this summer.

  • Seems like they are getting desparate...Killing as many civilians as possible to stir things up. Wait a minute? They did that from day one. Straight to hell swine.

  • Not of fucking peep from Muslims in this thread other than to glorify the violence against the innocent victims of homicide bombings.

  • really if you think about it , it wouldn't be incredibly hard to do depending on the size and complexity of explosive. Say they had some modern ordinence that is small but packs a wallop. All you would need to do is time a series of home invasions kill or tell occupants to leave then set them off at the other designmated time.

    I hope the general civilian population begins the realize how little the so called "feedom fighters" really do care about them.

  • first the americans were fukked good until they had to withdraw frm Iraq. Now it's turn for the traitors-dogs of the occupiers who were intalled into power. Everything is gong as planned. The Mujahidin cannot just sit back and watch Iraq change hands from one doggy-saddam to other dogs. NO NEVER. Iraq will soon be an Islamic State, just a matter of time.
