Thread Name: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
Subject: RE: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
Taken from Kat's Link:

"Before loading up into the helicopters for a return trip to Baghdad, Iraqi and American soldiers and some reporters helped themselves to the woman's freshly baked bread, tearing bits off and chewing it as they wandered among the cows. For most of them, it was the only thing worthwhile they'd found all day."

It would appear that Bush missed a photo op which would have allowed him to get his 'Flight suit' on again and descend into the hub of a dangerous Iraqi Insurgent strong hold and address the assembled (flown in special) Troops on the Ground and reporters ( also flown in special) and to be heard by all assembled to utter yet more immortal words straight from the mouth of the Commander in Chief (of the Operation formally known as 'Iraqi freedom')....."Kitchen! I'm famished!"

"Don't believe the hype - its a sequel"...a line from the lyrics of "Don't believe the Hype" by (the aptly named in this case named) 'Public Enemy'


....and it seems that the Bush administration now know that sequels rarely get the same response as the original Movie. In this case '4 Long years II '..is a flop at the American and International Box Offices.

I give it a Thumbs down.
