UN SOUVENIR DE GUERRE: I was in Borders yesterday, and I just had to buy the April 5 issue of Le Figaro Magazine. Not only was April 5 four days before the fall of Baghdad, it was sixteen days after the begining of the war. (Given the way magazines are published, this cover was no doubt prepared even earlier.)

Speaks volumes, doesn't it?

UPDATE: The picture should be working now, though the larger picture is no longer available (clicking on the picture should bring up the same JPEG as you see above). If anyone has any problems, let me know. (And just in case it isn't working, the caption is "Irak: Un nouveau Vietnam?") UPDATE 2: Ole Eichhorn is kindly now hosting the picture. If we ruin his site (apologies in advance!), try the PhotoIsland pic here.
