Lessons learned

Philip Stephens, Financial Times:

As for suggestions that Israel is ready to bomb Iran to prevent Mr Ahmadi-Nejad from getting his hands on nuclear weapons, the issue was now more complicated. “How do you bomb Neda?” the diplomat said, in a reference to Neda Salehi Agha-Soltan, the young woman whose death on the streets of Tehran has become a symbol of the regime’s repression.

I don't know about you, but if there's one thing I've learned from Neda, it's the importance of bombing her before she becomes an international symbol for Iranian civil rights. Otherwise there is no telling how she might inconvenience you.
