The really important thing about Iraq: us

Today Gordon Brown gives evidence to the Chilcot inquiry. This weekend, amid violent attacks on polling stations, Iraq holds an election. I wonder which will get the most coverage?

The rest of the world exists primarily as a mirror for us.

It's an extremely minor point, and yes, I am indeed being annoyingly pedantic, but it should be, not "the most coverage", but "more coverage", since you're comparing two items, not three or more.
Apart from that, an excellent post!

Yes, I do believe you're right. Although it's a distinction that's pretty rarely observered...
