Dozens killed in widespread attacks on Iraq invasion anniversary

A spate of car bombings rocked Iraq on Tuesday, the ninth anniversary of the U.S. invasion and days before the nation hosts a meeting of Arab leaders.

The violence left at least 41 people dead and 190 wounded, officials said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blasts that one senior Interior Ministry official described as "coordinated" and blamed on al Qaeda in Iraq.

    wow...the mentality of the people that do these types of things never cease to amaze me. I would truly love to know what their motivation is.

      I am beginning to think that the only motivation is to ensure as much bloodshed as possible for no reason at all.

    I would just add to"The B's"comment and ask this:Other than the twisted,sick,depraved"joy"of committing wholesale slaughter,what do these murderers actually want?What is their endgame?And the real question:Why is Islam silent in the face of these vicious,senseless atrocities?? Muslims should realize its not just we in the West who have reason to be wary of your claims of"peace and tolerance";its all too obvious that in too many places in the so-called"Islamic"world,you can't even live with each other! What does that really say about Islam? The truth,perhaps?
