Shi'ite, Meet Fan

Temple of the Mahdi gets blown up in Samarra. Its pretty much the holiest shrine for the Shi'ites.

NYT reports Baghdad overrun with militants and dozens of Sunni mosques have been attacked.

Who knows what the future Iraq will look like. About the only thing I can say for certain is that whoever is running the country, they'll make schoolchildren memorize February 22, 2006 as the start of the civil war. The winners may document it as a glorious or tragic day depending on circumstances. From where I stand, it just looks tragic.
