The attack in Boston wasn't the only attack that tragic day

In Iraq a string of coordinated terrorist attacks, including car bombs, left 55-60 dead and over 300 wounded (depending on which report you read). Just like the Boston bombings no group claimed responsibility but it's assume Al Qaeda (with ties to Syrian Al Qaeda) is behind it and it's probably because of Iraq's up and coming elections. Of course, as suspected, once the US military left the terrorists are free to do as they wish, just like everywhere else in the ME.

America has suffered terrorist attacks and will most likely suffer more in future but thank god we don't have it as bad as the nations in the Middle East who deal with terrorist attacks more frequently, unfortunately.

Attacks across Iraq as elections near; at least 55 dead

BAGHDAD — Insurgents in Iraq deployed a series of car bombs as part of highly coordinated attacks that cut across a wide swath of the country Monday, killing at least 55 on the deadliest day in nearly a month.

The assault bore the hallmarks of a resurgent Al Qaeda in Iraq and appeared aimed at sowing fear days before the first elections since US troops withdrew. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but coordinated attacks are a favorite tactic of Al Qaeda’s Iraq branch.

Iraqi officials believe the insurgent group is growing stronger and increasingly coordinating with allies fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad across the border. They say rising lawlessness on the Syria-Iraq frontier and cross-border cooperation with a Syrian group, the Nusra Front, has improved the militants’ supply of weapons and foreign fighters.

Blasts Across Iraq Leave Dozens Dead

More than 25 bombings across Iraq left at least 61 people dead on Monday, adding uncertainty and instability ahead of the first elections since U.S. troops left the country in December 2011.

No one claimed responsibility for the attacks, which wounded at least 274, but the barrage of mostly car bombings focused on Shia areas, raising suspicions that the increasingly powerful Islamic State of Iraq, the country's al Qaeda franchise, planned the attacks to further inflame sectarian tensions before provincial elections on Saturday.

But Iraq did get some justice against those terrorists.

Iraq executes 21 men convicted of terrorism

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq has executed 21 prisoners convicted on terrorism charges and links to al-Qaida, the Justice Ministry said Wednesday, setting off fresh criticism from a human rights expert over Baghdad's insistence on enforcing capital punishment.

The prisoners were executed by hanging in the Iraqi capital on Tuesday, according to a statement posted on the ministry's website. All the convicts were Iraqi al-Qaida operatives who were involved in bombings, car bomb attacks and assassinations, the statement said.

The hangings brought the number of prisoners executed in Iraq so far this year to 50, according to Deputy Justice Minister Busho Ibrahim. The latest group was the biggest this year, Ibrahim added.

The next lucky Middle Eastern nation, who will they be? Well, that's easy, Libya and soon Syria comes to mind.

Well, lucky if you're a terrorist.

Bush is not to blame.

Every President in the twentieth century has been a Rothschild hand puppet.

They wouldn’t let George manage a gas station let alone the "Free World."

He just read the teleprompter like he was told by the CEO of the NWO.
