on the eve of april 9th

Sometime early last summer, the convicted bank robber Ahmad Chalabi and the other handpicked members of the Iraqi puppet council declared that the date marking the "fall" of Baghdad would from here on out be an observed holiday.

April 9th, Iraqi "Independence" day.

April 9th also marks the 1948 massacre of the inhabitants of the village of Deir Yassin at the hands of Zionist terrorists.

April 9, the anniversary of the massacre at Deir Yassin.

and already a tense april 9th has broken in West Asia.

what bloodbath, i wonder, will the few of us who bother to remember be marking this time next year?
