In Baghdad, Iraq, a massive car bomb early today claimed at least 67 lives in a popular food market. The Islamic State, currently the most popular 'terrorist' organization on Western radar, took responsibility. Islamic State takes pride in a violence that it seeks to convert to something that is not called a dictatorship, but certainly hopes to call the social shots through its version of religious law.
It's just two incidents... 44-plus dead in one; 67-plus dead in the other. The first (it seems) by accident. The second very much on purpose.
There is a childish liberal inside me that asks, "Aren't the disasters that people perpetrate on themselves without intending to enough to suggest that prefabricating disasters is hardly necessary?"
It is, as I say, just a childish whining within.
