So, the Americans surrounded Uday and Qussay, besieged them and then ...

Where were the human shields? Where were the American peace protests running in front of the soldiers to protect them. Where were CNN and Al-Jazeera? Where was the slew of international phonecalls from world leaders urging President Bush not to harm them? Where was their visit from Javier Solana? Whatever happened to peace talks and a negotiated settlement?

Ah, those clever old Americans - they know how to do things. You just don't stop to ask questions. No long sieges - it's all over in 4 hours, before anyone has the time to do anything.

Perhaps Israel should remember that next time.
