Sunni anger spills into streets

Sunni anger spills into streets - MSNBC.com: "Enraged crowds protested the hanging of Saddam Hussein across Iraq's Sunni heartland Monday, as a mob in Samara broke the locks off a bomb-damaged Shiite shrine and marched through carrying a mock coffin and photo of the dictator.

The demonstration in the Golden Dome, shattered in a bombing by Sunni extremists 10 months ago, suggests that many Sunni Arabs may now more actively support the small number of Sunni militants fighting the country's Shiite-dominated government. The Feb. 22 bombing of the shrine triggered the current cycle of retaliatory attacks between Sunnis and Shiia, in the form of daily bombings, kidnappings and murders."

As Joe in DC opines on AmericaBlog: "just when you think Iraq can't get any worse, it's getting worse. Bush couldn't do anything to improve the situation over there before this latest debacle. We're so screwed. Bush may have Saddam's scalp, but, even in death, Saddam is getting his revenge on Bush every day that this war continues."
