Our Dear Leaders first war continues.

UPDATE: Reuters is now reporting the death toll at 98.

From the Associated Press by way of Yahoo we learn how well ODLs March To Freedom is going.
A suicide attacker detonated explosives strapped to his body Saturday at a gas station near a Shiite mosque south of Baghdad, triggering a huge explosion in a fuel tanker and killing at least 54 people, police said.

Eighty-two people were injured.

Police and witnesses said the fuel tanker was moving slowly toward the pumps when an attacker ran to it and detonated his explosives. The station is located in the center of town near a cluster of houses, many of which caught fire, the witnesses said.

Gasoline stations in Iraq typically include a number of small businesses selling tea, soft drinks and snacks and often are crowded with people.
No Pizza Huts or Burger Kings were injured by the blast.
