Messed up day in Baghdad

I'm in Baghdad taking some classes. We had to conduct a 100% accountability and it usually means something happened. Well, word gets spreading around pretty quickly. This happened not too far from my living quarters.

The office is "Combat Stress"... go figure.

Very sad to hear this happened. Thoughts go out to those injured and killed in this incident.

The messed up part is that he was disarmed earlier and returned with another weapon. I've seen news cameras all over the place out here.

As if Baghdad isn't crowded enough...

Is there a more cowardly means of 'fighting' than suicide bombing?
