1200-Year-Old Iraqi Shrine Bombed

There’s a horrible pair of before and after photos on Free Republic.com of the damage done in a bombing of a 1,200-year-old Shiite shrine, which reduced it to rubble. Hugh Hewitt has links to several other sources for details. And Glenn Reynolds writes:

If Danish cartoons could create riots worldwide against the defamers of Islam, you’d think that bombing of mosques would create anti-terrorist marches all over.

Since the majority of the cartoon riots appear to have been organized top-down, sadly, I doubt too many spontaneous anti-terror protests will begin.

But I’d love to be proven wrong.
