Welcome to Iraq…

posted by on March 17 at 12:22 PM

Mr. Vice-President!

A female suicide bomber penetrated one of the most secure perimeters in Iraq Monday evening and killed at least 42 people near the Imam Hussein shrine in the Shiite holy city of Karbala, according to the Iraqi authorities.

The explosion, the deadliest attack in Karbala in nearly a year, overshadowed a Baghdad visit by Vice President Dick Cheney, who met with Iraqi and American leaders and extolled what he described as “phenomenal” security improvements in the country.

I still don't know why they feel the need to say "female suicide bomber" if they don't distinguish male bombers.

Female suicide bombers are hardcore. Cuz they're chicks!

Question we'll hopefully be asking tomorrow:

Q: What color were Dick Cheney's eyes?

A: Blew. One blew one way and one blew the other.

You can't kill Dick Cheney with mere bombs!

Clearly his popularity rating over there is no higher than it is here.

I think you meant to say "Female suicide bombers are teh hot!", Mr. Poe.

Why do images of an open convertible with Dick roam thru my mind ...

No, Will. Please make no future attempts at telling Mr. Poe what you "think" he meant to say.

the distinguish the female suicide bombers because they're evidence that the war is perverting into never-before-known levels of insanity.

read todays NYT's 4.5-years-too-late expose of Paul Bremmer's retarded decision to dissolve the Iraqi Army for insight into this horrific phenomenon.

One suicide bomber blast does not a trend make.

NO. Dick Cheney needs to be alive so he can stand trial.

I would rather imagine Mr. Cheney's eyes turning turdblossom brown...
