Thirst for Freedom

Go read Baghdad Burning:
It's amazing how as things get worse, you begin to require less and less. We have a saying for that in Iraq, "Ili yishoof il mawt, yirdha bil iskhooneh." Which means, "If you see death, you settle for a fever." We've given up on democracy, security and even electricity. Just bring back the water.
Right wing morons, listen carefully. Lean in close. No, closer. I want you to be absolutely clear on what I'm about to say. Ready?

THE IRAQI PEOPLE ARE NOT BETTER OFF NOW THAT YOU'VE DESTROYED THEIR COUNTRY AND KILLED 100,000 OF THEM.

Freedom to starve or die of thirst isn't freedom. It's chaos. Like many others, sadly in the minority in this benighted country, I and the rest of the staff at Boring Diatribe knew Bushco was utterly corrupt and incompetent, and as capable of reforming a conquered nation as a gang of monkeys trying to construct the Taj Mahal. You'll end up with something at the end, but it's probably going to be a steaming pile of excrement.
