It ain't over yet

This shows the level of depravity and desperation of the Iraqi islamists:

TERRORISTS have used two mentally disabled women as bombs in an attack which killed more than 72 people who were shopping at two popular Baghdad pet markets.

In what has been described as the Iraqi capital’s deadliest bombing in more than seven months, the women were reportedly exploded by remote control, probably from a mobile phone.

Police said a female suicide bomber killed 45 people and wounded 82 at the Ghazil pet market in central Baghdad. Another blast just minutes earlier killed 27 people and wounded 67 at a bird market in southern Baghdad, police said.

The US military, which gave a lower death toll, said both attacks were caused by female suicide bombers and blamed al Qaeda. An Iraqi military official said the two women were mentally disabled and the bombs detonated by remote control....

They have run out of willing martyrs and have to resort to mentally disabled women. Perhaps children will be next. It hardly shows they have much support. We are winning but the war ain't over yet. I hope most of the providences can be turned over to local security forces by the end of the year. If that happens I would think Iraq would be reasonably secure no matter who's the next US President.

One question, why are these women called "suicide bombers"? They were mentally retarded and the bombs had to be set off by remote control. I doubt they were fully aware of what was going to happen.
