Bush, Iraq, and the New Secret Weapons
I watched George Bush this morning trying once again to turn Mission Accomplished into Victory Is Just Around the Corner..
And I've never seen anyone sound so optimistic.
U.S. President George W. Bush said Thursday he is among those who consider a new mixed-results report on Iraq's progress in meeting U.S. goals to be "a cause for optimism."
And look so beaten.
As if after more than four years of war...and more than half a million dead, a month and a half is going to make any difference
But that was until I read that the British troops in their Alamo called Basra have a new and deadly weapon.
British forces in Basra, blamed for a host of ills from militia turf wars to rising Iranian influence, are being held responsible for the latest danger to strike the city – a plague of giant man-eating badgers.
Whoa!! I don't know what the Geneva Convention says about that....but it just might work.
I still don't think it would be as effective as riding into Basra on the back of an army of giant pigs. But if it can eat snakes AND cows ......gobbling up the terrorists should be a cinch.
Which made me wonder whether the Americans might have something up their sleeves with their new Killer Puppy Program....
Nah. On second thoughts I don't think that one is going to work. It's too much like the ORIGINAL plan.
You know....First you raise the hopes of desperate Iraqis that things are going to be better. Then you tease them by keeping any progress out of their reach. Or not giving them enough of ANYTHING. Then you torture or kill them....or just treat them like....um.... dogs.
And then you're surprised when those ungrateful Iraqis bite the hand that's killing them.
Those dirty yankee bastards. Do you think they'll ever realize why they LOST?
As for the little honey badgers.....they say they are the most fearless animals in the world.
Do you think I could train them to attack homophobes? If so I WANT one.
If those hatemongering snakes think they've seen a surge.
They ain't seen nothing yet.....
