Do we see these sort of headlines about the Islamics so often we just don't notice the incongruities any longer? The following is not complete but is taken directly from one of a dozen news stories on Yahoo today. How can a city be so "Holy", a site be so religious but the slaughter of innocents be so acceptable? Muslims murdering other Muslims of different sects seems to me like Methodists slaughtering Baptists or Quakers going after those damned Presbyterians were it taking place here in Georgia, USA.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Bombs killed 30 people in Baghdad on Sunday and sectarian attacks wrecked six Shi'ite shrines in a rural area...Near the southern holy Sh'ite city of Kerbala, police found the bodies of five people, blindfolded, bound and with gun shots. Separately, the bodies of four brothers who worked in a humanitarian organization were found beheaded also in Kerbala.

So, if that be religion, please spare me any of that. I think we've sadly underestimated the Iraqi people and given them far more credit than they ever deserved. They are sheep and they needed Saddam to think for them as they are clearly unable to think for themselves.
