Gunmen have stormed an Iraqi provincial council building in the central city of Baquba, killing at least eight people and wounding dozens.

Officials say the death toll is likely to rise as attackers are still inside the building.

Two car bombs exploded outside the building, allowing insurgents to storm the headquarters during a weekly council meeting, reports say.

I am not trying to sound apathetic here, but, same stuff, different day. I’ve done three tours in Diyala and that building has been getting pummeled ever since 2003. I’m amazed it’s not rubble by now. Even as we draw down, the IEDs and attacks continue.

Once we are down to minimal advisors levels, I believe we will see a large scale attack, backed by Iran. That region has never seen peace since written history.

My terps used to tell me proudly that Mesopotamia was the cradle of civilization. I would quip back by telling them, “Maybe so, but civilization grew up and moved out.”
