Looks like somebody is pouring salt in our Iraqi victory soup again, somebody you might have heard about before:
“Baghdad teetered on the edge of political chaos Sunday. The city is in a state of emergency, protesters have occupied parts of the once-secure International Zone (IZ), lawmakers have run away and the military is on high alert.”
This resounding victory of ours just keeps getting more and more resoundingly decisive, doesn’t it?
Protesters, many of them supporters of Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, attached cables to the tops of heavy concrete blast walls that surround the Green Zone, pulling them down to create an opening, television footage showed.
Muqtada al… Waitaminnit, haven’t we heard that name somewhere before? Bill certainly has:
Haven’t we been told repeatedly by Bushbots and other dumbasses that (Iranian surrogate) al-Sadr and his faction had been completely eliminated as an influence inside Iraq?
Some people are going to be rather amazed when Iran subsumes Iraq into its sphere of influence – at minimum – or simply takes over its government via al-Sadr and others of his ilk. “Who could possibly have predicted something like this?” they will wail.
People who aren’t credulous dumbasses, that’s who.
Mind you, Bill wrote that way back in the day when warmongering, unreasonable, hateful, unrealistic “keyboard warriors” and “armchair generals” like Bill and our humble self were being assured time and time again by much brighter and even-keeled minds that Muttfucker al-Sadass was absolutely irrelevant now and that it was much, much more important to ensure that the “winning of hearts and minds” proceed apace than to keep pursuing a non-actor like him out of sheer primitive and pointless vengeance etc.
Interesting, isn’t it?
Now, we’re far too humble to suggest that our powers of prognostication, Imperial though they be, are advanced enough that we could have firmly predicted that Muffcatarrh and his troglodyte savages would eventually come to take over Baghdad, but we can’t help but thinking that maybe there’s something to be said about our “primitive” Imperial dictum that whereas the chances of some goat-bothering muslim barbarian becoming a problem in the future might be ever so slim, “slim” is still greater than “zero.”
The corollary being that “the chances of bad deeds being done by a waste of skin that has previously been turned into compost and pig swill are always exactly zero. So, just to be on the safe side…”
But what do we know?
