I know all of this and have been following this conflict as closely as
possible from Iceland for many years now. It's still my opinion that they've
gone too far and that there was an unproportionate reaction this summer. But
I'm not really willing to debate that, as I do not have time for the proper
research for that debate.

My appologies for throwing a 'bomb' in here that I can't follow up on. That
wasn't my intention at all.
