THE SPINE FEBRUARY 3, 2007

Sariyah Update

In my last posting, I wrote that the death toll in the Sariyah market suicide truck-bombing in Baghdad was 52, and that it would inevitably rise. After just about an hour, the number of dead has now climbed to 121. These were Sunni crazies who did the killing. And the Shia were the victims. There'll soon be some tit-for-tat. Of course, those who could afford to have left the country or dispersed to the hills. It is always the poor who suffer most.
