Two buffoons argue over an egg dropped on the floor. They both claim responsibility as they call it a wonderful culinary creation. The two erstwhile kitchen technicians are former V.P. Dick Cheney and current V.P. Joe Biden. The smashed egg ovum is the political situation in Iraq; the splattered albumen the Iraqi people; the shell fragments Iranian involvement.
Biden, on Larry King recently, said, "You're going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government." In reality, the current Iraqi elections (set for March 7) are quickly descending into brutality, bombings, and assassinations. An unelected election panel headed by an Iran-linked terrorist barred 500 candidates from running, including numbers 2 and 3 in the main opposition bloc, headed by former prime minister Iyad Allawi.
This is what we get for $1 trillion wasted: thorough Iranian infiltration of Iraq's economic, political, and military institutions, 4,000 Americans dead, several hundred thousand dead Iraqis, more than 2 million refugees, and what looks like a repeat of Afghanistan--rigged elections.
The two actor-buffoons want to argue over this, the current state of the worst foreign-policy disaster in U.S. history? It's a raw, volatile, already putrefying mess.
