I'd made a conscious and deliberate decision to stop (or more accurately, not start) making war posts, because anyone who wants to soak up the Shock-n'-Awe™ has more than enough media outlets catering to that whim. The following quote was too funny to let pass by, though (via CNN):
Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Sahef said the real situation in Umm Qasr is different from its portrayal in the media.He then added: "Beeyotch!"
"Those Iraqi fighters, those heroes at Umm Qasr, are teaching the American and British invaders a lesson," he said. "Those Iraqi fighters are slapping those gangsters on the face, and then when they flee, they will kick their backsides."
If you do your best the rest of the way, that takes care of
everything. When we get to October 2, we’ll add up the wins, and then
we’ll either all go into the playoffs, or we’ll all go home and play golf.
Both those things sound pretty good to me.
