They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Breaking News: UK Troops smash into Iraqi prison with tanks

db: BBC Worldservice radio reports that the British Army have driven tanks through the walls of a prison in Iraq containing the UK 'undercover troops' who were captured earlier and accused by Iraqi police of planting bombs. They are also reporting that as well as releasing the troops, the British action led to the escape of a number of alleged criminals and/or insurgents.

Maybe an alleged terrorist or two also escaped [not including the Brits].

This is extraordinary - even by Iraq standards.
