Iraqi Hospital Attacked

Apparently, a hospital was attacked by a suicide bomber. He summoned police to him outside the hospital, then detonated himself, killing 12 and wounding 4.

Incidents such as these remind me of the people we are fighting against there. A lot of crazy, crazy people in the US want to make these guys out to be freedom fighters and heroes. They are not. They are cold-blooded, heartless sociopaths. They attack hospitals, places of worship, schools, and other public places not by chance or accident but by purpose. In their eyes, there is no such thing as an innocent bystander or an off-limits target. Everyone is simply a means to their end.

Those who would be apologists for these monsters are almost as culpable in their guilt. To excuse something like this is . . . inexcusable.
