NO UN MISSION IN IRAQ There is no end to the number of people who are telling us that the only way in which order can be established in Iraq and the country be reconstructed is for the UN to come in and do it. The assumption seems to be that the UN would be more acceptable as interim authority than coalition troops.
The BBC reports:

A Nepalese former Gurkha working for a civilian security company was shot dead in an ambush as he was delivering mail for the UN on Sunday.

How come? I thought the Iraqis were yearning for the UN to replace our troops and now they're attacking the UN. Could it possibly be that the Iraqis don't care much for the UN? I wonder.
