A Lynching in Baghdad

Posted: Updated:

Zeyad of Healing Iraq posts a video showing the body of a Sunni imam murdered by the Mahdi Army being dragged through the streets of Baghdad. He comments:

"Note that life looks absolutely normal in the surroundings. You can see children running about, stores open, religious holiday flags and even a traffic jam. Perhaps Ralph Peters will happen to drive by with an American army patrol and enjoy the scene of children cheering for the troops, while wondering where his civil war is, dude."

Ouch!
