Baghdad Bloodbath

Yesterday 202 people were killed in Sadr 3, a Baghdad neighborhood within the so-called Sadr City area. An additional 252 were wounded,although some of them may have died later. US armor and helicopter gunships intervened.

Closer to Slayer, 21 people died in West Baghdad, including one whose body was dumped next to the East Wall. Three US soldiers were also killed. Although Victory was mortared while we were over there, most of this carnage seemed to start after lunch, after we got back.

I feel so helpless. I don't know what to do but shake my head.
