I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

The surgeles surge

As the media in the US continues to bleed the tragedy in Virginia for all it's worth very little is made of the non stop bleeding in Iraq.
4 Bombs Kill 127 People in Baghdad
BAGHDAD -- Four large bombs exploded across Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 127 people and wounding scores as violence climbed toward levels seen before the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital began two months ago.

In the deadliest of the attacks, a parked car bomb detonated in a crowd of workers at the Sadriyah market in a mostly Shiite area of central Baghdad, killing at least 82 people and wounding 94, said Raad Muhsin, an official at Al-Kindi Hospital where the victims were taken.


About an hour earlier, a suicide car bomber crashed into an Iraqi police checkpoint at an entrance to Sadr City, the capital's biggest Shiite Muslim neighborhood and a stronghold for the militia led by radical anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

The explosion killed at least 30 people, including five Iraqi security officers, and wounded 45, police said.
And as I reported yesterday the rate of U.S. losses in Iraq is highest yet. In the past six months, the rate of Americans killed in Iraq has reached its highest level ever, despite four years of fighting.

This is the backdrop as Democrats go to meet with the "decider", George W. Bush; a decider that the vast majority of Americans no longer want making decisions.
