Bombs in Baghdad this week help push Iraq's monthly toll to its highest since 2008

Casualty figures released by the UN mission in Baghdad suggest 1,057 Iraqis were killed in July, making it the most violent month in years.
At least 4,137 civilians have been killed and 9,765 injured so far this year, with Baghdad province worst hit.[...]
A wave of violence has swept Iraq in the past six months, with Sunni Islamist militant groups targeting Shia districts. In July there was a series of bombings in streets, cafes and mosques. Militants also broke into two prisons, setting inmates free.

Jeremiah predicted Babylon would face invasion, capture and punishment of its leader, all of which has happened with the U.S.-led invasion and capture of Iraq and subsequent hanging of Saddam Hussein. The calamities Jeremiah foresaw continued with the burning of the cities, abandonment, civil war with the Kurds, defeat and plunder at their hands, a catastrophic flood event of the Euphrates/Tigris and subsequent drought that leads to a deserted and uninhabitable state of destruction.

Will the latest violence spark the fires that burn the cities of the land of the Chaldeans?
