No Kites In Evidence

Further evidence of what the L3 fought so hard to preserve:

Mr Kehoe investigated mass graves in the Balkans for five years but those burials mainly involved men of fighting age and the Iraqi finds were quite different, he said.

"I've been doing grave sites for a long time, but I've never seen anything like this, women and children executed for no apparent reason," he said.

John Kerry may want to rethink his plan to outsource the war to the EU, though:

Mr Kehoe said that work to uncover graves around Iraq, where about 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam Hussein's regime, was slow as experienced European investigators were not taking part.

How very unilateral of them. So why does our continent not want to cooperate with a murder inquiry ?

The Europeans, he said, were staying away as the evidence might be used eventually to put Saddam Hussein to death.

Perish the thought that the Iraqi's themselves should be free to decide whether mass murder was a capital crime. Can anyone deny the extent of Europe's moral collapse when even a mass grave full of women and children is treated as nothing more than a chance for more posturing ?
