As I speculated yesterday, I think it is no coincidence that there is rising carnage in neighboring Iraq as Iran is on the verge of collapse. Desperation can cause violent insanity – as we see in the massacres taking place on the Iranian streets daily now.
At least seven bombs exploded around the country Thursday amid a uptick in violence as American troops prepare to withdraw from Iraqi cities on June 30.
The attacks were widespread, targeting Shiites and Sunnis, civilians, Iraqi security forces, and American soldiers. There were at least five bombs in Baghdad. One, at a bus station, killed two and wounded 30 in the late morning, security officials said, though witnesses at the scene said the toll was higher.
It is no surprise the tottering Iranian regime would also attempt to distract the world from its internal strife by initiating a wave of bombings in nearby Iraq. This will not work, but will only underscore the Awakening of the Muslim Street to the violent evil that is at the heart of radical Islam.
Just like the bombings in Iraq spelled the end of al Qaeda in Iraq, just like the bombings in Pakistan has given the government there the backing of the people to destroy the violent Taliban and al Qaeda enclaves in the tribal areas, the Iranian regime’s violence will turn the Muslim Street (Arab and Persian) against radical Islam. When the bombings start echoing through the Muslim Street it is a good sign the radicals are going for their last ditch strategy before they are completely defeated.
