and back in Iraq

Another apparently sectarian attack on Iraqi civilians, this time in a small town called Mahmoudiya near Baghdad,41 or more dead. I question the usefulness of posting the photos I find sometimes; I feel angry at the filtered US television news, and I tell myself that the bigness and the randomness of the internet being what it is, maybe occasionally people will see something they experience as broadening of their perspective. I don't know.

Dozens of heavily armed attackers raided an open air market Monday in a tense town south of Baghdad, killing at least 41 people and wounding 42, police and hospital officials said. Most of the victims were believed to be Shiites. (AP Photo/Samir Mizban)
