Just a reminder that we're still at war, in many places.
TASHKENT (Reuters) - Simultaneous bomb attacks struck the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Uzbekistan as well as the state prosecutor's office in the capital Tashkent Friday, killing at least two people and wounding five.
The action appeared clearly coordinated, days after the start of a trial in Tashkent of 15 suspected Islamist extremists on charges of trying to overthrow the ex-Soviet state in connection with attacks in March that killed nearly 50 people.
This appears to have been a well coordinated attack using suicide bombers. I understand the attack, in this instance, on the Uzbek and US targets, but bombing the Israeli embassy appears to have just been a target of opportunity. After all, they can never find too many opportunities to kill Jews.
