This is not good

This is not good



Not good at all:

A bus carrying Israeli tourists exploded in a fireball on Wednesday outside an airport in the Bulgarian city of Burgas, killing at least six people and wounding dozens more in what Bulgaria, Israel and the United States called a terrorist attack. Israel quickly blamed Iran.

Photographs and video taken at the airport showed billowing black smoke from the explosion that left the bus a blackened skeleton, scorched several buses nearby, shattered windows and forced the airport to temporarily close. Eyewitnesses quoted by Israeli news media said some victims were on fire as they tried to escape the flaming bus and that many had suffered severe burns.

The most important news of the article comes in paragraph No. 7:

“All signs point to Iran,” Mr. Netanyahu said in a statement released by his office.

Surprised this story's not getting more attention -- if this were "The Newsroom" Will McAvoy and Co. would be giving this the full hour while the other lame networks would be prattling on about the new iPhone. First and foremost, it's a horrific and barbaric act and an unspeakable tragedy for the victims and their loved ones. And the broader context is mosr worrisome. For months, we were concerned that -- justifiable or not -- conflict between Iran and Israel would escalate and the whole world would suffer from dire consequences, economic and otherwise.

That dreaded day may be here.

Now what?
