Attacks in Iraq kill at least 76 people, officials say

The death toll from several attacks across Iraq rose Monday to 76, Interior Ministry officials said.

Dozens were wounded.

The deadliest attacks happened in the town of Taji, roughly 20 miles north of Baghdad, where a car bomb and four roadside bombs exploded in a residential complex, killing 32 people and wounding 43, authorities said.

In another attack, at an Iraqi military base north of Baghdad, militants armed with mortars and small arms killed at least 15 soldiers, according to the officials.

    How many recall the Alabama shooter last week? He walked in and shot 5 more unarmed civilians than that Dr. Mehdi psycho Officer at Ft. Hood did, and YOU think this sh/t is rare and dramatic!
    One simple theatre shooting rampage an't even a blip on our nationwide radar.
    Go Penn State! Surely the Holy See saw this coming.

    Even after 11 years. no one is able to content sectarian violence in Iraq. If Obama-Hillary and their western alliance with Jihadis militias of several Sunni states will continue their regime change ideology in Syria, the world will witness even worst sectarian violence for many decades to come; As it happens everywhere; the worst victims will be the minority race; who had lost everything in Iraq and will surely lose everything in Syria too.

    The invasion of Iraq and its aftermath an enduring legacy of death and destruction. Duplicated in "Operation Enduring Freedom" ongoing for 11 years in Afghanistan.
    5 US troops and 3 workers killed reported today.

    Oh, what don't we do to secure "Freedom" and "Peace" for people across the globe ? A pat on the back for us.

    Oops I forgot to add that the divine inspiration for such noble undertakings comes to us from the divine center itself – Tel Aviv.

    Well, "a" divine center is Tel-Aviv with the Israeli Supreme Court being entirely highest ranking Freemasons. THE divine center of the universe has been the Holy Roman Vatican. (modern day catholic religious empire) @saywhat, NOT Donna. ty

    Let's see this so-called "War on Terror" through to the end so everyone in the world will at least have air conditioned homes. (electricity) Why? So the already written Victory Act of Congress turns the CIA loose to clean-up America.
    Go ahead and secure the world. But don't forget about US.
