Pair Of Shorts

BigTommy passes on a report from another and better universe. Mind you, I quite like Becks - I think the Country is lucky to have a whole back-up Royal family ready to roll if it all goes wrong with the Windsors.

Meanwhile, Timmyhawk has a good post about Iraq. I'm not so sure about the emphasis on planning failures - with an operation this big and this compex something was bound to go wrong, so the test was surely the ability of the Coalition to react to disasters, rather than try (vainly)to predict them in advance. But, anyway, Timmyhawk rightly points out that it is bizarre to witness all the angst about intelligence failures in Iraq, while ignoring the failure of intel to detect so much as a whisper about Libya's program.
