A report on cnn.com today describes a suspected terrorist detained in Mosul as responsible "for bringing in large numbers of suicide bombers into Iraq." According to the Iraqi military, the detainee had ties to the radical Islamic terrorist group al Qaeda.
Meanwhile, violence raged across Iraq, as exploding bombs and other attacks killed at least 32 and wounded dozens others in Baghdad. In response to the renewed violence following the hanging of Saddam Hussein and two of his top aides, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki pledged to target lawlessness from any quarter: "No school, house, mosque or husseinya [Shiite mosques] will be out of reach of our forces if they are harboring outlaws. The same for political party headquarters."
"I say (our law-and-order plan is) targeting everyone..."
How long can it be before Baghdad burns? Let it burn, so we can bring our troops home: "I shall set fire to his cities, and it will devour all his environs... So the peoples will toil for nothing, and the nations become exhausted for (the) fire... We applied healing to Babylon, but she was not healed; forsake her and let us each go to his own country..." (Jer 50:32; 51:58; 51:9)
