Let me introduce you to ... Iraq's first female suicide bomber. Why is it that bloody stupid jobs always end up being the ones to drop the glass ceiling the fastest? I hope this isn't a prelude to using children, which will then complete the resemblance to Vietnam, minus the swamps and jungles. The civilian casualties, when anyone gets around to attempt a full accounting, are going to be astronomical when this is all over.

Juan Cole has a list of more recent outrages in Iraq, as well as the political forces moving events right along.
