Another deadly attack on civilians...

At least 85 people were killed yesterday when a suicide bomber struck in Kirkuk. It was the deadliest attack in the city since the war began.
We are so removed from the battlefield that it would be easy to forget the numbers of civilians that are getting killed every day in Iraq. Even those of us who opposed the invasion of Iraq had no idea that it would end up becoming this kind of humanitarian disaster. And the same NeoCons who "sold" this war to the American people are now agitating for an attack on Iran. Lunatics.
