Here’s what’s happening in Iraq:
On Thursday, sectarian violence between Shiite and Sunni Muslims left more than 100 people dead. The violence was sparked by Wednesday’s bombing of the Askariya shrine in Samarra, one of the holiest sites in Shiite Islam.
If you are having trouble interpreting the news, Karl Rove is here to help. Yesterday, he explained to Fox News’ Tony Snow that the bombing on the mosque would “likely” turn out to be a positive development:
SNOW: So you expect this [the bombing of the mosque] is going to strengthen the opposition to the terrorists?
ROVE: I think it could. I think it’s likely to.
The good news from Iraq keeps pouring in.
