Casablanca Bombings More terrorist activity

Casablanca Bombings

More terrorist activity on the heels of the Riyadh bombings--this time in Casablanca. Note that a Belgian target was struck (though the terrorists may have been instead planning to strike a Jewish owned restaurant nearby). Regardless, as I and many others have argued before, for al-Qaeda (or like-minded fellow travellers), the subtleties of Brussel's anti-war-in-Iraq machinations won't buy any Belgians added security from the theocratic barbarism of such terror groups.

UPDATE: Predictably, the "linkage" arguments as between the latest batch of terror incidents and Iraq is being made in the likely quarters.
