Moral Equivalence Watch

Seems that the Red Cross is angry with all warring parties in Iraq. Somehow I don't think the "insurgents" are too worried by their failure to meet their basic humanitarian obligations, though I imagine it must be quite encouraging to them to learn that other parties are held equally to blame.

I can understand the frustration felt by aid agencies at their inability to work unmolested in places like Falluja, but I note that, to date, there have been no reliable reports of US forces executing aid workers.
