Legal "Among the treasure troves of recently released WikiLeaks cables, we find one whose significance has bypassed Swedish media. In short: every law proposal, every ordinance, and every governmental report hostile to the net, youth, and civil liberties here in Sweden in recent years have been commissioned by the US government and industry interests." How such prestigious nations with such long and proud histories, like Sweden, The Netherlands, and so on, can succumb to pressure from a former colony is beyond me. We should know better.

Not usually. In most languages, like my own native Romanian it's actually spelled Irak.
But hey, I don't have an entire press department at my disposal to correct my spelling. Even with a press department, G.W. still managed to rename nuclear as nucular.

I have to confess I expect English spellings on an English speaking site.

However "Irak" is wrong for a "British" prognostication. It is correct of a US one though. However I think ours rolls off the tough better.
