|What reward do Islamic militants give a woman who dedicated her life to helping the poor and vulnerable in Iraq? They shoot her in the head. These maniacs cannot be bargained with, they know no mercy, they cannot be "understood". They are sadistic killers who would kill us all if they had the chance. Woe betide anyone who traces such atrocities back to Tony Blair or George Bush. Oppose the war by all means (as I do), but do not give these people even the hint of an excuse for what they do.
