Dandy Don No Longer...

More like Don Rumsfeld, Super Dick:
A full 10 seconds of silence passed after a reporter asked Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld what the intense secrecy and security surrounding their visit to Iraq signified about the stability of the country three years after the U.S.-led invasion. Rice turned to Rumsfeld to provide the answer. Rumsfeld glared at the reporter.

"I guess I don't think it says anything about it," he snapped. He went on to say that President Bush had directed him and Rice to go to Iraq to "meet with the new leadership, and it happens that they are located here," a reference to the heavily fortified Green Zone where U.S. officials -- and many Iraqi leaders -- live and work.
Awwww, some nasty terrorists went and runied Little Don's war game. What did you think was gonna happen jackass? Warfare as we know it changed and you didn't get the memo: invasions will always be met with insurgencies (hell even the French did it!) and they're much more effective thanks to technology... and the vast amount of weapons floating around the world.

Again: what a dick.

The Trillion Dollar War

Now this is a scary sort of graphic that shows the cost of the whole Iraqi-escapade at over a trillion $$$. Nice.

Weird Fact of the Day...

Did you know that 'the base,' as in "Christian fundamentalists are George Bush's base," is 'al Qaida' in Arabic.

Adrian's Boys Stick It To Bush

George Bush can’t get no satisfaction — after Mick Jagger grabbed his hotel room.

The Rolling Stone splashed out £3,600 a night for the suite days before the US leader tried to book it.

Now Mick, 62, who has been a fierce critic of the Bush-led war in Iraq, is refusing to give it up.

The veteran rocker hired the luxury Royal Suite at the five-star Imperial Hotel in Vienna, Austria, for June when the Stones are due to play a gig in the city.

Bush’s aides then tried to book it to tie in with a summit meeting.

But Mick put his foot down and insisted he was keeping the booking.

A source close to the millionaire singer said last night: "White House officials had wanted to reserve the suite and all the other rooms on the first floor.

"But Mick and the Stones had already booked every one of them.

"Bush's people seemed to be under the impression that they would just hand over the suites but there was no way Mick was going to do that."
Of course they assumed that: they think they're better than everyone. Kudos to Mick!
