Car bombs exploded in a synchronized spree of attacks outside at least four churches in Baghdad and the northern city of Kirkuk Sunday, killing at least three Iraqis and wounding nine, police said. The country's ceaseless violence killed at least 20 people, including 13 Iraqi policemen and soldiers.
Meanwhile, Iraq's top Sunni Arab political leader accused Shiite-dominated security forces of pursuing a strategy of sectarian "cleansing" in Baghdad and said he opposed giving key Cabinet posts to Shiites — a stance likely to further inflame sectarian tensions.

Ok that's it, we are really, really, mad now. It was apearantly ok when muslims murered muslims, but now, oh no, Christians are being targeted. Time to take out the "wup-arse" again. Besides a "journalist" was injured this weekend also. Shame on you terrorist, SHAME.

Hey - and do you remember, when in First Gulf War British Jets dropped two laser Guided Bombs on Fallujah, with Intention to Destroy the Bridge, but hit the CROWDED MARKET INSTEAD, killing somewhere between 50 and 150 People?

And this has to do with christains?
You going to point out all the stuff the MOD has done wrong to justify terrorist actions and say how wrong the west is?
Yes the MOD has done wrong, yes they did hit civilians, yes they used weapons you dont like but frankly thats war. In GW1 they where there to liberate kuwait from sadamm, but wait thats no justification since after all we created him.
So dammed if we do , dammed if we dont.

It has ALOT to do with Christians, for they are the Ones Dropping Bombs from the Sky and they are the Ones Invading Muslim Lands.
It is not about Justifying Terrorist Actitives, it is to Understand them.
For most of the People see Savage Muslim Radicals blowing themselves up - when in fact they are Soldiers, just like Fighter-Bombers pilots that drop 1000 pound bombs almost everyday.
The only Difference between them is the MEANS of Delivery.
GW1 was the War which was an Experiment to see if WARS are still Possible after the fall of the Iron Curtain - the REAL Conflict, was not a war with Iraq over the invasion of Kuwait, but a greater question concerning the concept of war. The first Gulf War served as a crisis point, determining whether or not war was still possible in the post-Industrial, post Cold war age.
No - Actually Just DAMNED.
