Massive Death Toll in Iraq Potentially Linked to Zarqawi.

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Three explosives-vested suicide bombers, one an Afghani, were captured after the deadly attack and stampede that left 1,000 Shiites dead during a ritual procession in Baghdad. The captives named Abu Musab al-Zarqawi as plotter of the atrocity.

Ace's Caveat: I don't know if I've ever seen a "DEBKAfile exclusive" pan out. Just sayin'.

Definitely click on the stampede story, though. It's the worst carnage in Iraq yet, this time caused only indirectly by terrorism.

Ace's Retraction of the Caveat: There was a terrorist attack on a shrine a mile away from the bridge. That seems to have begun the panic.

Al-Jaafari's administration has said that supporters of Saddam Hussein, who lost their status when the Sunni-dominated regime fell, together with al-Qaeda-linked operatives, are trying to ignite a civil war.

I am getting very tired of attempting to stop a civil war. I am increasingly in favor of letting one occur.

We'll see how the Sunni terrorists enjoy having entire cities leveled and populations ethnically cleansed. Lord knows they enjoyed it well enough when they were the ones doing the violence.
