BAGHDAD — A coor-dinated wave of car bombsstruck Shiite pilgrims inBaghdad and several othercities today, killing at least 65people and wounding morethan 200 in one of the dead-liest days in Iraq since U.S.troops withdrew from thecountry.The bloodshed comesagainst a backdrop of politi-cal divisions that have raisedtensions and threatened toprovoke a new round of theviolence that once pushedIraq to the brink of civil war.Nobody immediately claimedresponsibility for the attacks,but they bore the hallmarksof Sunni insurgents who fre-quently target Shiites in Iraq.Today’s blasts were thethird this week targeting theannual pilgrimage that seeshundreds of thousands of Shiites converge on a golden-domed shrine in Baghdad’snorthern neighborhood of Kazimiyah to commemoratethe eighth century death of a revered Shiite saint, ImamMoussa al-Kadhim. The com-memoration culminates onSaturday.Puddles of blood andshards of metal clogged adrainage ditch at the site of one of the bombings in the cityof Hillah, where hours beforepilgrims had been marching.Soldiers and dazed onlookerswandered near the charredremains of the car that hadexploded and ripped gapingholes in nearby shops.Most of the 16 separateexplosions that rocked thecountry targeted Shiite pil-grims in five cities, but twohit offices of political par-ties linked to Iraq’s Kurdishminority in the tense north.Authorities had tightenedsecurity ahead of the pilgrim-age, including a blockadeof the mainly Sunni area of Azamiyah, which is near thetwin-domed Shiite shrine.The level of violence hasdropped dramatically in Iraqsince peaking in 2006-2007as the country faced a Sunni-led insurgency and retaliatorysectarian fighting that brokeout after the U.S.-led invasionthat ousted Saddam Hussein.But Iraqis still face near-dailyattacks and Shiite pilgrimagesare often targeted.Political divisions alsohave only deepened, para-lyzing the country since theAmericans withdrew all com-bat troops in mid-December.Shiite Prime Minister Nourial-Maliki has been accused of

costs amount to about $1,000an acre for rice. Because of a reliance on foreign exportmarkets, prices can changerapidly. Currently prices forSouthern rice are not thatgood, unlike the strong pricesenjoyed by corn and soybeangrowers.Testifying last monthbefore the House AgricultureCommittee, Armand Morris,a peanut producer in Georgiaand chairman of the SouthernPeanut Farmers Federation,said the debate “is not whetherfarmers will take significantcuts in farm programs; weknow this will take place.”Rather, he said, it’s about“whether we will have a farmbill that works for one ortwo regions of the country,and one or two crops, or anational farm bill that worksfor all regions of the countryand all crops.”A recent study by theFood and Agriculture PolicyInstitute at the University of Missouri in Columbia doesshow that rice and peanutgrowers who are the mainbeneficiaries of direct pay-ments would lose more than60 percent of their govern-ment support over the nextdecade under the new sys-tem.But the same report alsofound that the shallow lossprogram was generally equi-table among the major cropgroups.Southern senators areseeking to negotiate changesto the bill that would allow achoice between the Senate’scurrent crop insurance andrevenue protection programsand some modified form of existing target price programthat compensates farmerswhen prices dip below a cer-tain level and which is pre-ferred by the rice and peanutgrowers. The bill already hasa separate revenue insuranceprogram tailored to the needsof cotton farmers.If that fails, HouseAgriculture CommitteeChairman Frank Lucas,R-Okla., has made clear thatthe yet-unwritten House billwill include an alternative tomeet the concerns of thoseSouthern planters. The safetynet, he said, “has to exist forall regions and all crops, andit has to be written with badtimes in mind. These pro-grams should not guaranteethat the good times are thebest, but rather that the badtimes are manageable.”
