Daytime Curfews

Years after the initial invasion, we're seeing daytime curfews. Shrub's War seems to be headed south on the fast lane.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Gunmen killed dozens of civilians Thursday and dumped their bodies in a ditch, as the government ordered a tough daytime curfew of Baghdad and three provinces to stem the sectarian violence that has left at least 114 dead since the bombing of a Shiite shrine. Seven U.S. soldiers died in a pair of roadside bombings north of the capital, and American military units in the Baghdad area were told to halt all but essential travel to avoid getting caught up in demonstrations or roadblocks.

It's a sure sign that things are going badly when the military starts to "run for cover".
