Iraqis inspect the site of a bombing in Kirkuk, Iraq, Monday, Aug. 15, 2011. Bomb blasts ripped through more than a dozen Iraqi cities Monday morning, killing scores of people _ most of them in the southern city of Kut _ in a wave of violence that shattered what had been a relatively peaceful holy month of Ramadan. The violence struck from the northern city of Kirkuk to the capital of Baghdad to the southern Shiite cities of Najaf, Kut and Karbala, and emphasized the persistent ability of insurgents to wreak havoc at a time when Iraqi officials are weighing whether they are able to protect the country without the assistance of American troops.
