Just how surreal has the war in Iraq become? Consider this anecdote, about a firefight between the U.S. and Shiite insurgents inside an amusement park where the insurgents were storing heavy weaponry:
"At 12:30 a.m., soldiers were drawn into an intense firefight, killing an Iraqi who had been lobbing grenades from the area of the pirate ship ride."
Grenades? Everyone knows true pirates use their trusty cutlasses.
The apologies continue to roll in for the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal, with Condoleeza Rice and the deputy secretary of state having the guts to use the "A" word. Still nothing from President Bush, however.
I used to frequent an IRC channel back in the mid-90s, when I was cool and wild and stuff.Posted by Highwaygirl on May 6, 2004 12:42 PM to the category Political Rants
