Najaf mosque bombing



Dreadful news from Iraq as a car bomb outside a mosque kills 75 and wounds 142. Also, killed in the blast was a moderate Shia cleric who was viewed as a long time enemy of Hussein. Speculation is that Hussein loyalists are behind the attack in an effort to foment sectarian violence in Iraq.

Clearly, the US is going to have to triple its efforts to hunt down Hussein. The longer he is out there stirring things up, the more dangerous the situation becomes. The Bush team must internationalize the policing efforts by bringing in troops from other nations freeing up US forces to track down and kill Hussein.
