      I can't figure out why this mistake seems so abhorrent to a few, but I must admit I did get excited when I read Iran.

    Get your headlines right. Without that, there is no credibility to your story.

    The overall standard of reportage in SA is pathetic. They muddle their facts in the most simple cases!

    Since 1994 the education standard is very poor in SA. In Europe in grade 8 all the kids know that Iraq capital is Baghdad and a neighboring country Iran is Tehran. Before put something on www please check some facts. Thank you.

    This is exactly what was expected when Saddam was deposed. All Muslims but need to kill each other to prove who the better ones are. Religious intolerance is typical in every religion. Ban religion and this problem will go away. There were no religious killings in China or Russia when religion was banned.
