Crucial weasel infrastructure hard hit 

As the terrorist attacks against oil infrastructure in southern Iraq halt the exports for at a week, other freedom fighters around the world are picking up on the tactics from Iraq:

"French electricity and gas workers hit central Paris in their anti-privatization strike on Wednesday, briefly slashing power to the Champs Elysees, the presidential palace and the U.S. embassy.

"Workers also curbed the top European power exporter's power flow to Spain and hit operations at Gaz de France's terminals and storage facilities, the CGT union said."
Poor Spain, gets in the way again.

Those concerned about shortages of electricity during the hot summer months in Iraq should also pray that the industrial action by the French electricity workers doesn't continue much longer. We can all remember after all "the brutal Gallic summer" of 2003 when up to 15,000 mostly elderly people perished in a heat wave. Now imagine 2003 but without electricity and you'll know why France should tremble before its electrical union jihadis.
