Cartoon war claims casualties in Afghanistan

Proving that not all Muslim countries are averse to quashing the cartoon protests, Afghan police and International peacekeepers killed four demonstrators earlier today. This group of protesters attacked a NATO base manned by troops from Scandinavian countries. It was reported that Norwegians were struggling against the mob along with the Afghan police. The Norwegians claim they only fired shots in the air to disperse the crowd. The government suspects that al Qaeda and Taliban may be using the cartoon flap to incite violence against the US-backed Afghan government though they have no solid proof. Today's shootings brings the cartoon war death toll to six in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, it looks like the Iranian have revived one of their most successful tactics, overrunning embassies of western nations. Ayatollah Khameini offers his usual sage advice as well.
