Baghdad erupts in violence...

A mother held the IV drip for her daughter, 8, who was wounded by cross-fire during street fights in the Jihad neighborhood of Baghdad yesterday. The Sunni-Shiite bloodletting was frightening even by recent standards.

Beginning to look like the situation is out of control. Not much our soldiers can do. Maybe it's time to bring them home ...and hope and pray that the Iraqis can resolve their differences.


CNN's Nic Robertson is reporting some recent (horrible) examples of brutality in Iraq that are beyond my ability to understand. Maybe the reports are based on false information. Anyway, the reports are too graphic to be described here.
