Another
mass grave.
"In the latest in a series of grisly discoveries, the U.S. military said Thursday it found another mass grave this one in northern Iraq and thought to contain the bodies of up to 400 Kurdish women and children slain by Saddam Hussein's regime.
...
Some 25 sets of remains all women and children have been pulled from the grave, each with a bullet hole in the skull. The military said the size of the area leads them to believe the site contains between 200 and 400 bodies.

Since the end of the Iraq war, at least 60 mass graves, some with hundreds of corpses, have been discovered. The United Nations is investigating the killing or disappearance of at least 300,000 Iraqis believed murdered during Saddam's regime."
I hope my children study this in school along with the Holocaust, the Khmer Rouge, and North Korea. Then again, were they to study every state-sponsored horror, they'd never have time to study anything else.

Eeegh.
Creepy. Maybe it was random violence. Maybe the government killed him. Maybe the BBC killed him. Who knows. I don't follow stuff over there that closely but this seems very unusual. Especially in light of this. Somebody in this mix is dirty as hell but I don't have any real inclination as to who yet.

France: even further off the deep end. They've
Banned the word e-mail. I don't understand why they're so freaking worried about keeping their language "pure." It's just misspelled mispronounced latin with a few germanic, moorish, and anglo-saxon words added to the mix.
