Weekly terrorism update 

The fact that the leaders of the Spanish terror cell blew themselves up rather than being arrested is bad news. I guess their motivation was to protect their contacts. People who think like that are the worst possible opponents for a democratic state.

The Shiite uprising in Iraq may be even more significant, and is yet another complication where there already are plenty.

In the meantime, CNN's headline is the raid by the US forces on Falluja - eye-for-eye counts more than political significance apparently. One of these moments when the American hegemony with its taste for aggressive backlash is rather depressing.
