ICBPS- Two suicide bombers detonated explosive vests in a crowded market in central Baghdad on Thursday morning, killing at least 32 people and injured 110 others in the biggest such attack in several years, on the same day the president-SELECT Joe Biden took office. Of the injured, 36 are being treated in hospitals. Suicide Bombings
Terrorist group ISIS, whose leader was killed by former president Donald Trump’s order, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Two suicide bombers detonated their vests when security forces pursued them through a busy market off Tayaran Square. Witnesses said the first cried out he was ill, causing a crowd to form around him in a street off the main square. He then detonated the bomb he wore, according to NPR.
As a witness, a fruit vendor, Abbas Abdulkareem said “We were shocked,” Abdulkareem said, “because for some time there have been no explosions. The situation was safe, and people were optimistic.”
Not only ISIS has been totally wiped off from the map, but the local terrorist militants were greatly weakened under former president Donald Trump. Now, it only reminds Hillary Clinton’s infernal confessions: “Let’s remember here… The people we are fighting today, we found them twenty years ago! … and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.”
“They invaded Afghanistan… and we did not want to see them control Central Asia and we went to work… and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea… let’s deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and let’s go recruit these mujahideen.
“And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.
“And guess what … they (Soviets) retreated … they lost billions of dollars and it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
“So there is a very strong argument which is… it wasn’t a bad investment in terms of Soviet Union but let’s be careful with what we sow… because we will harvest.
“So we then left Pakistan … We said okay fine you deal with the Stingers that we left all over your country… you deal with the mines that are along the border and… by the way we don’t want to have anything to do with you… in fact we’re sanctioning you… So we stopped dealing with the Pakistani military and with ISI and we now are making up for a lot of lost time.”
