** Of course, predictably, Putin's Ruskie State TV is milking the past and current US Regime/Hegemon's Culprit for all it's worth, especially in light of Putin's recent series of geopolitical PR-coups on Syria. That said, it's the truth: undeniably, it IS the PNAC/neoCon/RINO-hijacked corporatist warWHORES' fault!

A string of bombings has killed at least 96 people in the Baghdad suburb of Sadr City, Ur district and the northern city of Baiji, adding to the worst year of violence since US troops began leaving the country in 2008.
The first bomb exploded next to a tent full of mourners in the Shiite neighborhood. Shortly after, a suicide bomber detonated his device while driving a car near the funeral-goers. A third bomb exploded as police and ambulances arrived at the scene.
"Crowds of people were visiting the tent to offer their condolences when suddenly a powerful blast...threw me to ground," said 35-year-old Basim Raheem.
"When I tried to get up, a second blast happened. My clothes were covered with blood and human flesh. I thought I was wounded, but later discovered I was lying in a pool of others' blood," he added.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks in Baghdad, in which at least 72 people were killed and 120 others wounded, medics said.
