Iraq Stuff

So the war has started (not quite in earnest) – it was rather eerie watching a BBC reporter in Kuwait wearing a full gasmask this morning on Breakfast News “War in Iraq special” whilst giving an update on the situation. Trying to scare the kids for life doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. War Websites have sprung up already including IraqBodyCount which is self-explanatory. Let’s hope the figures are low (already on 16…). The less said about StarSpangled IceCream the better.

Now we have 24/7 coverage of the war – seems strange. Even the last war the pictures of correspondents were from poor quality video phones, this time the troops are watching live Sky and the journalists are actually on the boats. Whats that all about?
