Three dead, two dozen wounded in Iraq explosions

A car bomb exploded Tuesday outside a popular restaurant in eastern Mosul killing three people and wounding 19 others, a health official said.

Most of the dead and wounded were civilians, Salaheddin Thanoon, the head of the health directorate, told CNN. Three Iraqi soldiers were among the wounded, Thanoon said.

The incident happened about 12:30 p.m. on a busy commercial street near the University of Mosul.

Mosul is about 220 miles (350 kilometers) north of the capital city of Baghdad, where another bombing Tuesday left six people wounded.

    Nobody cares about anybody who gets injured over there, whether it be civilians or soldiers.
    We're too busy mourning the loss of a single singing black crack-addict.
    Soldiers hurt? Civilians dying? They never starred in Bodyguard, so who cares.

    Thank You former President G. W. Bush / VP Dick Cheney for declaring war on Iraq and removing that ruthless tyrant, Saddam Hussein, from power. Iraq is so much safer now, isn't it?? Ughhh...):0(

    Who cares that the US receives 25% of the worlds resources to serve the 1% of the US elite
    Who cares that 3/4 th's of the worlds population impoverished, while 5% of the worlds population (America) is sitting pretty.

    i think everyone cares, you just get numb after awhile.

    and compared to hundreds or thousands a day, it just pales.

    What an irony is that there was no civil strife and NO public bombings and not a single car bomb, in either Iraq or Afghanistan BEFORE Americans showed up. But Americans are really to stupid to string a logical line between cause and effect. Evidence they are still cheering the mass murder of civilians in Libya and Afghanistan and electing psychopathic Bush cloned creatures such as Romney or Santorum
