Shelling continues apace

Let's see, Iraq is ablaze with sectarian violence, Lebanon is a shambles, Gaza is still under assault, US and Israeli sabres continue to rattle over Iran and now:
Turkey and Iran have dispatched tanks, artillery and thousands of troops to their frontiers with Iraq during the past few weeks in what appears to be a coordinated effort to disrupt the activities of Kurdish rebel bases.

Scores of Kurds have fled their homes in the northern frontier region after four days of shelling by the Iranian army. Local officials said Turkey had also fired a number of shells into Iraqi territory.

But, by all means, we must stay the course.
