Annan calls for urgent relief for Basra
They're out of food and water. The UN is asking that we send in supplies and electricity.
Basra now 'military target'
Our response is that in order to get the humanitarian aid into Basra, which is now surprisingly filled with Iraqi soldiers, we're going to "target the Iraqi military" with bombs.
