    Interesting. What's the terrorist group's goal? Taking over the world, overthrowing a government, random destruction, chaos?

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    To be fair, (because I may be taking too much from this event) a bomb attack in Baghdad isn't particularly noteworthy on it's own. That said, coming on the heels of the issues between Maliki and his Sunni VP and the Kurds...well it doesn't look good. ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-16283562 ) The thing about the bombings today is that it was practically continuous over multiple hours. Now on the positive side, the death toll seems to be relatively low, especially for the number of explosions. I suppose it will be telling if over the next few days the political tensions ease and this turns out to be a somewhat random attack like a lot of the other bombings, or if it's just the start of some sort of new phase of devastation. Damn...I guess I spoke to soon. And some of the wounded will probably not make it too. http://twitter.com/#!/AJELive (As of 4 am est) Latest casualty number is 63 dead and 180+ injured.

    Iraq is falling apart just in the last couple of days. First they accuse the VP of being a terrorist leader and he flees to Kurdistan to seek sanctuary.

  22. I finally got around to watching episode 7 and the ending blew my mind. I was totally shocked that Sophia was in the barn and a zombie. I guess I always expected they would find her alive somewhere because she and Carl are so close throughout the comics. I have no idea where this thing is going now. I didn't think Shane would last this long either, but he is fun to watch. As much as I hate the guy, he's definitely entertaining. I really don't see how he can last forever though. With his erratic and dangerous behavior, he's going to get himself killed sooner or later.
