I found this picture incredibly sad and just seeing it brought 9/11 rushing back to me in an instant. Imagine if you had to deal with this kind of violence every single day? How can we let the terrorists continue to have their way in this world??? Short answer. We can't.

Iraq: Iran-Linked Arms Trafficker Arrested One can only hope this scumbag is the party responsible for the recent uptick in bomb related incidents.

The Iraqi authorities have arrested a man they believe to be a major trafficker in arms, particularly bombs, coming from Iran, a US spokesman in Baghdad said on Friday. The man, whose identity has not been released, was arrested in the mainly Shiite stronghold of Sadr City in the capital. He is accused of being a middle man between groups of Iraqi insurgents and the al-Quds battalion of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. No arms were found in the house of the 58 year father of six, but police found large sums of cash, various laptop computers and two satellite phones.

Excellent news. They also got the cellphones and the computers.
