I think Iraq will get worst as we push in other countries to stop the extremist. I hope I am wrong.

Bombs kill 23 in Iraq's western Anbar province

By KATHARINE HOURELD, Associated Press Writer Katharine Houreld, Associated Press Writer 11 mins ago

BAGHDAD Twin bombings one an assassination attempt against an Iraqi provincial governor killed 23 people and wounded the governor Wednesday in the worst violence in months to hit the western province that was once al-Qaida's top stronghold in Iraq.

Also on Wednesday, a British hostage held for more than two years by militants was released safely in Baghdad and is now in the care of the British Embassy.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said in a statement in London that Peter Moore was released by his captors Wednesday morning and taken to Iraqi authorities.

"He is in good health, despite his many months of captivity. He is undergoing medical checks and he will be reunited with his family as soon as possible," Miliband said. "He is obviously to put it mildly delighted at his release."

A Shiite militant group called Asaib Ahl al-Haq, or League of the Righteous is believed to have been behind the abduction of five people, including Moore, from Iraq's Finance Ministry in 2007. Moore was working for a U.S.-based management consulting firm in Iraq at the time of his abduction, and the other four men taken were his security team.

The bodies of three of the bodyguards were later released and British officials have said the fourth, Alan McMenemy, is believed to be dead as well.

Strange how this wasn't splashed across the headlines as it was when the exact same thing happened under Pres. Bush. Yes, there are articles, but not "front page" ones.

I do.. Just sharing my thought on your reply. Mostly to draw others into the conversation FS..
It didn't work and I give up trying. I'm just posting from now on, no opinions, no thoughts till others get involved.
