From the news
Unit commander in Iraq resigns and is reassigned
As the woman commander of the quartermaster unit is black, this reminds me of the Port Chicago incident during World War II when black US sailors near San Francisco disproportionately were sent to a dangerous job loading ammunition aboard ships and thus disproportionately were getting blown up

Britain obeys US, plans to send troops to central Iraq
Lord, in Thy mercy: hear our prayer

Not that it definitely would change things, but no wonder most Britons want Kerry to win in the US.
