At least 71 dead, 201 hurt in bombings and other attacks across Iraqi capital

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- At least 71 people were killed and 201 wounded in a series of bombings and other attacks across Baghdad on Wednesday, police and medical sources said, extending the worst wave of sectarian bloodshed in Iraq for at least five years.


Do these myriad on-going bombings constitute the "fires" in the cites of the land of the Chaldeans? Are Jeremiah's "fires" a euphemism for the modern-day bombings we are witnessing? Or will literal fires break out in the cities of Iraq, burning the "high gates" -- a known biblical euphemism for "city centers" -- in direct, explicit and very literal fulfillment of Jeremiah's prophecy of doom and judgment on Babylon?
