Oh so cunning. In previous centuries people living in the Middle East used to risk being stoned to death. Now they get rocked to death. Except apparently, gunmen in Fallujah who have AC/DC played at them aren't thrown into a suicidal frenzy. And the US army is a bit miffed by this. If it works on Texans, why hasn't it worked on Iraqis? Who knows - maybe they are waiting for the US Marines on the front line to go mad first [insert suitable commenting suggesting the marines are already mad here].

Or maybe they chose the wrong music. Maybe they should try Mmmbopping them to death (whatever became of Hanson?). Or have they tried Cher? I've got it! Steps! And then play the sinking into obscurity spin-offs.

They are also using taunts to try and rattle the fighters. "May all the ambulances in Fallujah have enough fuel to pick up the bodies of the mujahadeen.” The Americans sure know how to do dignified.

And just so the Americans don't feel lonely. Canadian PM commemorates the d-day invasion of Norway. Well, when you're from such a big country, Bayeux, Bergen, it's all much the same.

Continuing round the Commonwealth - SA has been busy having elections, and Southern Cross covers them extensively.

Anyhoo, that'll do for now, until I find something else interesting.
