Italy, Iraq and Suicide Bombing

Fay this article of yours is as sharp as a knife, you lead us right into that picture, and you strike with the accuracy of a sniper. They are not just numbers anymore.
Thank you.

This week, anti-war Italians and non-Italians, the Italian government and the media had a reason to talk about Iraqi checkpoints after the killing of intelligence officer Nicola Calipari and the wounding of journalist Giuliana Sgrena by American soldiers.

First, there's no doubt this was an accident that must be fully investigated. Iraqis have tried to tell the world about similar accidents happening near checkpoints. Iraqi voices aren't well heard and - even if heard - people doubt their credibility. So, it took an accident like this to shed some light on the rules of engagement at Iraqi checkpoints."

I posted my comments on the top, because I could not post to Fayrouz's blog. So I wanted to make sure I said it. A must read for everyone.
