Cold Comfort

I'll leave it to others to summarise today's reported happenings in Iraq. It makes for grim reading. What I'm feeling right now is relief that it wasn't a hell of a lot worse. Today there was a huge number of pilgrims in Najaf commemorating Imam Ali's death. Had those ceremonies been attacked the consequences are too apalling to contemplate - even by the standards of American occupied Iraq.

Cold comfort, but today have been a hell of a lot worse.
