"Without incident"

Right now Democrat Party symbiotes are ramping up the usual pre-election slaughter in Baghdad. And Democrat Party surrogates in the "news" media are playing this for all it's worth.

But there are other things happening that I bet you won't see on your evening news. (Just a guess, I don't watch it myself.)

The second mass pilgrimage in a month was held this past weekend without incident of violence in Iraq.

This past weekend Iraqi security forces successfully provided security for nearly one million Shia pilgrims who thronged to Najaf, Iraq in a peaceful commemoration of the death of the first imam. The pilgrimage concluded without incident...

...In September, nearly 4 million Shia pilgrims flocked to the holy city of Karbala without incident....

Just thought you might find that interesting.
