A blog on the current crises in the Middle East and news accounts unpublished by the US press. Daily timeline of events in Iraq as collected from stories and dispatches in the French and Italian media: Le Monde (Paris), Il Corriere della Sera (Milan), La Repubblica (Rome), L'Orient-Le Jour (Beirut) and occasionally from El Mundo (Madrid).
Somebody neglected to pass the Israeli minefield data around. One crewmember dead and three injured when they drove their tank into a unmarked Israeli minefield in Lebanon. Meanwhile, the bastards left plenty of unexploded ordnance around to kill Lebanee troops and civilians. A team of Lebanese bomb defusing team just killed.
