Tough news from Iraq today 

Reuters and others are reporting that an angry crowd of Iraqis are dragging charred and mutilated American bodies through the streets of Falluja:

As one body lay burning on the ground, an Iraqi came and doused it with petrol, sending flames soaring. At least two bodies were tied to cars and pulled through the streets, witnesses said.

Like Mogadishu, this is not only a tragedy, it is a test. How will we react? Pray that it is with wisdom, resolve and competence.

UPDATE: If you can stand it, here's a photograph. The rest of the photos are from elsewhere in the region, and they too are worth a look -- there is something to outrage everybody here.
