A little way towards balancing the body bag count ... and is our Tone one hereux chappie!

MOSUL, Iraq (AP) - Saddam Hussein's sons Odai and Qusai died in a blaze of gunfire and rockets Tuesday when U.S. forces, acting on a tip from an Iraqi informant, stormed a palatial villa in northern Iraq. The U.S. military claimed their deaths will blunt Iraqi resistance to the American occupation.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair hailed the deaths as "a great day for the new Iraq." Speaking during a trip to Hong Kong, Blair said the two helped lead a regime "responsible for the torture and killing of thousands and thousands of innocent Iraqis."

Whereas Tony leads a squeaky clean regime "hardly responsible at all, at all for the intimidation and vilification just one solitary insignificant scientist" ... do the math. What's more the jury judge is still out on that one. It is anticipated that forged, plagiarised documents wot fell off the back of a Prime Ministerial directive evidence to be provided by Alistair Campbell and Geoffrey Hun is likely to sheet the blame home to the BBC. Alistair was quoted as saying, "I think we are looking at black cap and final hearty breakfast territory, not that I would like to pre-empt the learned judge's findings. Technically I'm not doing that because I haven't passed on the official script to him as yet. So up you, sunshine!"
