A Hot Day in Iraq

A suicide bomber in Iraq today caused a fuel tanker to blow up, killing about 56 people and setting neighboring houses on fire. How he did it depends on if you read the New York Times (who say he drove it) or the BBC (who say that he snuck up on the truck, then ran toward it before pulling the thunder cord).

Earlier, three British soldiers were killed in southern Iraq by a group calling itself the Imam al-Hussein (the grandson of the Prophet - pboh - who was the founder of the Shia sect in Islam).

And an entire company - a company, mind you - of US soldiers was pulled off the active duty roster after foiling an attack on a power plant. It seems that one soldier blew the whistle on the others, who were allegedly abusing the seven insurgents detained after the attack.

'Nuff said.
