Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Thirty Billion

Says Rumsfeld: "Shit. I spend $30 billion in Iraq and all I got was this stupid religious government.

From the NY

"BAGHDAD, Iraq, Dec. 19 - Early voting results announced by Iraqi electoral officials on Monday, with nearly two-thirds of the ballots counted, indicated that religious groups, particularly the main Shiite coalition, had taken a commanding lead. The secular coalition led by Ayad Allawi, the former prime minister, had won only meager support in crucial provinces where it had expected to do well, including Baghdad."

Looks like Bush will get along beautifully with the new Iraqi government.

What does the "thirty billion" figure refer to? The financial cost of entire the Iraq war so far is more like $225 billion. Or are you referring to something more specific?

No, just bad figures on my part. Thanks for the correction. But my point still stands.

Well, at least PETA and the Quakers are shut out of Iraq. I feel safer already.

USWest: with the tenfold increase in the expense figure, your point stands even stronger!
