Oliver Kamm reports an online petition dedicated to protecting Iraq's academics from murderous attack.
Strange, I thought. The average head-chopper's not going to take much notice of a petition.
Silly me. The petition's aimed at the real murderers - the Americans !
The good news is multiple voting seems to be allowed. I wonder how long my contributions (between 4410 and 4420) will last. See if you can spot them.
I see that a Dr Al-Ali Nadje of Exeter University is a signatory. I wonder if, like his Exeter colleague Kamil Mahdi, he thinks we're just not taking enough casualties ?
