OK, I can’t resist. Associated Press is reporting that Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki has ordered a daytime driving ban in Baghdad and Baquoba provice (where Abu Musab al Zarqawi was killed) to prevent car bomb attacks.
The driving ban will be from 11am to 3pm. So we should expect car bombings after 3pm and before 11am. Maybe the Iraqis should just outlaw driving and cars altogether.
