Robert Fisk%3A %27A better and safer place%27: “Yes%2C it is a shameful reflection on our invasion of Iraq – let us solemnly remember %22weapons of mass destruction%22 – but it is%2C above all%2C a tragedy for the Iraqis. They endured the repulsive Saddam. They endured our shameful UN sanctions. They endured our invasion. And now they must endure the anarchy we call freedom.%0D%0A%0D%0AIn Baghdad%2C of course%2C it was the usual story yesterday%3B a suicide bomber killing 15 Iraqis and wounding another 62 when he blew up his fuel tanker bomb next to a police station %28pictured above%29%2C and an Iraqi defence ministry official murdered outside his home. And true to the Alice-in-Wonderland world of the new Iraqi government%2C 43 new Iraqi ambassadors were appointed around the world. But who did they represent%3F Iraq%3F Or just Baghdad%3F”
