The UK foreign office has declared Iraq a no-go zone and recommends nationals leave.
This puts paid to the rediculous claims that the situation in Iraq has improved. A recent US study (bi-partisan) concluded that the situation was worst in all areas and that was before the recent surge in violence.
But what can a Prime minister do? surrender to the sicko's commands? There appears no alternative in situations like this, the captives just have to die, not so powerful as we think are we
Well, they could release them (the two women detainees). We could do with knowing why they are held and what they are charged with ... imagine how sick it would be if they turned out like so many of the other people - detained for years, never charged and eventually released.
BTW: I hope those who were against the Spanish elections going ahead will be calling for Iraqi elections to be postponed. Carrying on is a farce.
Maybe things will improve when the US and UK stop their daily terrorism. Right now it seems the only "solution" that those in charge can come up with is to drop more bombs on people and kill more civilians. Bravo, what a great way to win the peace, the hearts and minds.
Whatever happened to "shock and awe". Don't those people look fucking stupid now. Rumsfeld and co. should be stung up from the nearest lamp-post.
