Over100 people killed a day in assassinations, sectarian killings, and Bomb attacks the worst of it seen in the bombing of a football (9soccer) match. it is nightmare beyond explanation by many fueled by insurgents the radical escalation violence is now directed by Iraqi’s versus Iraiqi’s and groups like al qaeda and other terror cells as well as revenge units of death squads taking violence to higher levels means Iraq is strangely turning from worse to the worst possible outcome.
Many statements have been said constantly to downplay the situation - but one thing is clear the level of violence and numbers of attacks paint a picture that may lead to a break-up in some ways of Iraq.
