Sorry if this is a time waster but I really can't let this howler slip by
without comment.

A glance at a map is enough to blow this 'argument' away (Fallujah is
indeed right next to the Euphrates, not 'over 100 kilometers away'). But
then no doubt Tom will be able to produce some equally devastating reason
why all the maps in the world are wrong, or why I don't exist or why am part
of the conspiracy ...

Best wishes,
