I eagerly await Dubya Inc. and its dwindling bunch of water carriers trying to explain this to Joe and Jane America.....<br><br><i>More than 1 million pilgrims were ordered to leave the Shiite holy city of Karbala on Tuesday and police imposed a curfew after two days of violence — including raging gunbattles between rival militias — claimed at least 35 lives during a religious festival.<br><br>
Nearly 200 people were wounded, security officials said, and the government sent reinforcements from Baghdad to quell growing unrest and help clear the city.<br><br>

It is worth noting that the fighting was between Shiite factions, not Sunni on Shia.<br><br>
You cannot make this shit up.

What the article doesn't say is that they will be allowed to return after The Surge succeeds; say sometime in the late summer of 2073.

As one could expect, the death count rises and the violence spreads....<br><br><i>Fighting erupted Tuesday between rival Shiite militias in Karbala during a religious festival, claiming 51 lives and forcing officials to abort the celebrations and order up to 1 million Shiite pilgrims to leave the southern city.<br><br>
***<br><br>
Gunfights also broke out Tuesday between Mahdi militiamen and followers of the Supreme Council in at least two Shiite neighborhoods of <b>Baghdad</b> and in <b>Kut,</b> about 100 miles southeast of the capital, police said.<br><br>
Extra police took up positions in the center of another Shiite city, <b>Diwaniyah</b>, after gunmen fired on a mosque associated with the Supreme Council, police said. A curfew was clamped on the Shiite city of <b>Najaf</b> after a mortar round exploded on a major square, causing no casualties, officials said.</i><br><br>
