Quite frankly, this "high stream" is of perhaps at most 3 messages. Are we
supposed to all bury our heads in the sand regarding the fact that, given
the level of publicity, politics in the US and UK currently affect the
situation in Iraq?
There is no information about the situation in Iraq that is not now part of
US and UK politics.

CASI needs to evolve or die. I thought we choose to evolve. Was I so wrong?

I am willing to post information on the situation in Iraq, not matter how
intertwined it is with US and UK politics at the moment, and no matter what
you say on the subject. If that is so terrible, throw me off the list.
