NZ to play part in Iraq mine clearing

The shooting has stopped, they're under the UN (rather than US) flag, and they're not going to be waving guns at Iraqis, so it's fairly acceptable. Still, we're helping to clean up the American's mess, but it's the decent thing to do.

OTOH, you'd think that having made such a mess of the place, the Americans would clean up their own unexploded bombs. I guess that none of the President's cronies is in the demining business, or that there's no money in it or something...
