Bush Excited About Reemergence of Horrible Iraq Bloodshed!
The Surge has already worked, but now it is starting to un-work . The Green Zone in Baghdad is under attack, and there is a battle in Basra between various factions of Shiites, Sunni militias, U.S. soldiers and the fake Iraq army. Famous "Shiite cleric" Muqtada al-Sadr's cease-fire with the Maliki government has splintered his group, and now al-Sadr is under pressure to disregard the cease-fire entirely. Sunni insurgents have only been peaceful because the Americans bribed them, but now they are for some reason shooting at each other too. Temporary calm has devolved into chaos, forever. And that is why President George W. Bush responded today that this is a "very positive" development. Al Qaeda is on the run, or something!
Here's what America's President told theTimesof the U.K. about this fantastic new development of increased death:
[Bush] backed the Iraqi Government's decision to "respond forcefully" to the spiralling violence by "criminal elements" and Shia extremists in Basra. "It was a very positive moment in the development of a sovereign nation that is willing to take on elements that believe they are beyond the law," the President said.
Yes, almost as great as that other time when the Norse laid siege to Greenland and those two penguins responded by flapping Eric the Red in the shins. And now those penguins have a flourishing democracy in the heart of the Middle East, and the Vikings are a lousy football team.
