From the AFP via the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) :

Gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on former Baath official Lamia Abbas al-Chill early on Saturday as he walked his son to school, police Lieutenant Raed Jawad Abdel Sadeh said.

The son died instantly and Mr Chill was wounded in the head and chest, Lt Sadeh said.

Mr Chill was said to have been a close aide to Ali Abdullah al-Dhalimi, the former regional chief of the deposed Baath party who was beaten and shot dead by an angry crowd near Najaf on Wednesday.

Mr Dhalimi was suspected of helping to repress a Shiite insurrection in 1991.

Another former Baath party official was killed on Friday evening in a separate attack in Najaf, which lies about 130 kilometres south of Baghdad, Lt Sadeh said.

Gunmen killed Ali Qassem al-Tamimi, a former local official under the Baathist regime, and Mohammad Mokhtar Khdayr inside an electric supply store in Najaf, he said.

And after they are done with the Baathists, will they turn on us?

There are plenty of Baathists to go around. They aren't smart enough to hide, so the Iraqi clearing house sweepstakes shouldn't take long to win.

I'm Christian, but Festivus has it's merits. "Feats of strength" is my favorite. It's easier to put away the Festivus pole when the season is over.
