Bombs are the major cause of casualties in Baghdad. Car bombs may get all the headlines, but really it is the daily routine of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and their sticky bomb brethren attached to vehicles that make up the vast majority of violence in the capital. In July 2015 (http://musingsoniraq.blogspot.com/2015/08/anbar-operation-and-turkeys-bombing-of.html) for example there was 1 suicide car bomb, 4 suicide bombers, 18 car bombs, 25 sticky bombs, and 112 IEDs versus just 45 shootings in Baghdad. Of the 436 killed and 1,108 wounded during the month in the province 324 of the dead and 1,060 of the injured were due to bombs.
