Last Tuesday, a truck bomb killed 63 people in Baghdad. But, see, that doesn’t really count since it was, you know, the Shia extremists who did it.
Today, at least 10 15 people were murdered in a suicide bombing in Baquba. But, see, that doesn’t really count since the perpetrator wasn’t, you know, a Sunni male, but a woman.
So, you know, all in all, I think we can safely say that al-Qaeda is on the run and dead-enders are beaten and we’ve really turned a corner.
