Who Wears Short Shorts?

Just when you thought the situation in Iraq was improving. Think again. Three members of the Iraq tennis team were shot dead on Thursday for the crime of wearing shorts. Witnesses said the three were dressed in shorts. Earlier this week militants issued a warning forbidding the wearing of shorts.

"The gunman took the body out of the car and threw it on top of the other two bodies before stealing the car," said the witness, who requested anonymity.

He said leaflets had been recently distributed in the area warning residents not to wear shorts.

Worse still, now comes word that US Marines, finally documented evidence is emerging, have recklessly killed innocent Iraqi civilians. The Globe reports today that there is stark evidence emerging of deliberate reprisal killings of about two dozen civilians, including women and children, by a handful of U.S. Marines.

Good to see both Bush and Blair admit mistakes. Now it time to get serious about reconstruction and a future for the country.
