Iraq - happy happy!

Thanks to a tip from the No More Mister Nice Blog, I've been alerted to even more smiling Iraqi children on the White House web site:




Apparently the other banner was getting a little overused, what with all the great accomplishments in Iraq - mission accomplished, liberation, reconstruction, renewal.

The White House reported in its Iraq Liberation page that:

News accounts are painting vivid pictures of the joy and relief of free Iraqis, who are living without fear of Saddam's brutality and beginning to enjoy freedoms unknown for decades.

Oh...my bad. I must be getting the same news that American parents are getting, before they tell their kids not to sign up for the military.

Of course, if they aren't among the tens of thousands of Iraqis killed in the American invasion, surviving Iraqis have a lot to smile about, like how monkey boy incited terrorists in Iraq with the quip, "Bring 'em on", as we are reminded every day in Today in Iraq:
There are some who, uh, feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is: Bring 'em on. We got the force necessary to deal with the security situation.

War News for Thursday, June 30, 2005

Bring 'em on: Mortar attack reported near Japanese troops in Samawah.
Bring 'em on: Two Iraqi police commandos killed, six wounded as insurgents rampage in Samarra.
Bring 'em on: Two Polish soldiers wounded in grenade attack near Diwaniya.
Bring 'em on: Four Iraqi civilians killed by mortar attack in Tal Afar.
Bring 'em on: Two Iraqis wounded by mortar fire in central Baghdad.
Bring 'em on: Five Iraqis killed by car bomb in Baquba.
Bring 'em on: One US soldier killed by car bomb near Balad.
Bring 'em on: Iraqi assemblyman assassinated near Baghdad.
Bring 'em on: US Marines launch counterinsurgency offensive near Hit.
Bring 'em on: Oil pipeline ablaze near Kirkuk.
Bring 'em on: Two more Marines reported dead from ambush in Fallujah.

After monkey boy's delusional speech on Tuesday, I'd say the White House could use a good infusion of reality, and not just a little truth. So here's my suggestion for a White House Iraq banner, from Count the Casualties:

All I can do is sit here and shake my head...

I'll be banging it against the wall shortly.

WHAT does this administration have to DO to really make people angry? People still rant about Clinton's lying about a blow job, for crying outside!

Schroeder: Amen.
Mixter: I know what you mean. But even though the news media aren't talking much about Iraq (on TV, I mean), the new Zogby poll is telling. 42% would support impeachment proceedings if it was shown that we were misled into war. Which, I guess, is why we need to light a torch under Pat Roberts' ass. If (and it's a big "if") we can get a real investigation into the administration's use of intelligence, dark clouds will gather once more over the White House. Bush's approval ratings have been steadily slipping, and much of that is because of the war, which most Americans now believe was a mistake.

Out of town over the weekend, I caught a just enough of monkey boy's little patriotic rant, slurring like a cowboy, comparing the cause of revolutionary troops to the cause of liberating Iraq. Nice try. What a friggin' idiot!
