Basra is a 'safe zone' no more - revisited

20061016_Basra boy throws a rock at a burning British consulate vehicle after RPG attack

This photo amply illustrates the situation in Basra. The car is a British consulate SUV - the "consulate" is in fact occupation headquarters for Southern Iraq. I've written about Basra repeatedly. Try running a site search here for Basra to see how "peaceful" Southern Iraq is. British readers might be particularly interested in this posting and this one British Brass Express Unease .
