"When the news emerged of the US bombing of a gathering on the Syrian border last week, (that's the wedding massacre to you and me) I wanted to drop down a hole and pull it in after me," writes David Aaronovitch. There's more: "Nor have I accepted that the Abu Ghraib torture and abuse pictures represent simply an aberration." And yet he believes that around 600 dead in Fallujah was an accident and that America invaded Iraq for the good of the Iraqi people. Still he and I do agree on one thing. I want him to drop down a hole as well.
