If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


The Emir

I shouldn't really comment on terrorism, or trials -- GNUWin32 is more my schtick. But I couldn't help noticing that all the reports of the second July bombers trial called Muktar Ibrahim the "emir" of the plot, and helpfully translated that word as "ringleader" or "kingpin".

I just wonder how the Foreign Office would take it if the BBC started writing about the Ringleader of Kuwait...
