The jihad update 

Anyone who’s looking for some real insight into what’s happening on the ground in Iraq should make sure to check out the “Healing Iraq” blog, ably run by Zeyad, young agnostic Sunni dentist from Baghdad, currently working in Basra. In particular, check out his postings from Monday, April 05, 2004 “Al-Sadr calls upon followers to 'terrorize' the enemy” (about the weekend of Shia-Coalition violence) and from Friday, April 02, 2004 “Fallujah, a God forsaken town” (about the events I recently discussed on this blog). As you will notice, both Zeyad and I have chosen the same template for our blogs.

Meanwhile, Mr Latham appears to have some more foreign imitators. Al Quaeda, not satisfied with the Spanish government’s decision to pull out troops from Iraq is now threatening the Madrid appeasers with more terrorist attacks, unless the PM Zapatero also agrees to the al Quaeda’s very own timeline for the withdrawal – four weeks for the Spanish troops to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Judging by the past track record of the Iberian Socialists in standing up to terrorists, the Spanish troops will be back on home soil in time for “Christmas in July”.
