The Way Back Quote Machine Goes to .... November 2006

Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki:

I can say that Iraqi forces will be ready, fully ready to receive this command and to command its own forces, and I can tell you that by next June [2007] our forces will be ready[.]

Right out of the BushCo playbook. Make a statement, and figure no one is going to look back and hold your to it.

How many Freidman Units does this make, again?

Karl Rove probably wrote the statement, since the Iraqi government is really the Bush government.

That's why it is so screwed up.

It must have been written by a Neocon for sure!

CHUQ said...

Agreed! Maliki has not had an original thought since becoming PM. His thoughts are dictated by the US and the Shi'a majority.

I do not know who wrote it, but has not anyone in the admin--they dictate but do not write, it could bite them in the butt.

All who actually believe what Maliki said, I invite you to claim your share of my African diamond mine by sending me your bank account, credit card, social security and PIN numbers, along with your left arm and first born. ;-)

Accountability? What was that again? Ever since Bush has been in power, I think they removed accountability from the dictionary. Or have we just been brainwashed to think they are above the law? Either way it is up to us to hold them to it. Anyone with me?!
