This morning gunmen raided a home in the small Shiite area of Baldrouz, north of Baghdad. A poor Sunni family who’d moved to the area to work in the local brick factory were slaughtered. Two men, six women and a little girl were killed. The last two men were taken and the family is gone.
In the south in a town called Suaira in Wasit Province another family met the same fate on Thursday. A man, two women and a little boy were killed.
It’s unclear who did this. Maybe it was revenge, militias, insurgents or a sinister crime. But what is clear that even though things are better they aren’t ok. People are still dying here and they’re killed almost every day.”

Rush Limbough, Bill O’Reilly, and probably NBC’s Brian Williams, don’t give a shit about any of this. All they care is that their cozy, well-fed, little lives aren’t compromised.
