FIRST SHOTS FIRED: Times Online reports that the Brits have killed at least one Iraqi who was attempting to mine the waters off Kuwait. (via Drudge)

UPDATE: You have to love Drudge for getting these clips up so quickly. 40 minutes have passed since I posted this–and I’m not sure how long Drudge had it up before I noticed it–but the New York Times and Washington Post haven’t reported it yet. You’d think they’d at least check the Drudge Report even if they didn’t do their own reporting….
