Could someone explain to me why crazy people do this?
Strap bombs onto themselves, or fill a car full of explosives, and drive themselves into swarms of people? Killing women, children, and other innocent people? What exactly is the logic here? Oh yea... there is none.
It really is sad that these people think they will go to heaven and get what 75 virgins or something.... Great.... Its gonna be very hot in "heaven"
Baghdad Blasts Kill 31 as Zarqawi Declares War on Shiites
Thursday, September 15, 2005
BAGHDAD, Iraq — Homicide bombers inflicted another day of mayhem in the capital Thursday, killing at least 31 people in two attacks about a minute apart that targeted Iraqi police and Interior Ministry commandos. The carnage left nearly 200 people dead just two days.
A dozen bombings during a nine-hour spate of terror Wednesday killed at least 167 people and wounded nearly 600 — Baghdad's (search ) worst day of bloodshed since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003.
U.S. officials blamed the bombing onslaught on efforts by the Sunni Arab-dominated insurgency to answer the Iraqi army's successful offensive in the northern city of Tal Afar (search ) and to undermine the Oct. 15 referendum on Iraq's new constitution.
"These spikes of violence are predictable around certain critical events that highlight the progress of democracy," said Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch (search ), the chief American military spokesman.
"Remember, democracy equals failure for the insurgency. So there has to be heightened awareness now as we work our way toward the referendum. That's power, that's movement toward democracy."
Al Qaeda in Iraq, headed by Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (search ), claimed responsibility for the bombing campaign launched after an Iraqi-U.S. force of 8,500 soldiers stormed Tal Afar, an insurgent bastion, this week.
