The Lady Speaks

This is a Civil War

From 60 Minutes‘ little gabfest with El Pollo Loco:

Reporter: Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?

Bush: That we didn’t do a better job or they didn’t do a better job?

Reporter: Well, that the United States did not do a better job in providing security after the invasion.

Bush: Not at all. I am proud of the efforts we did. We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude, and I believe most Iraqis express that. I mean, the people understand that we’ve endured great sacrifice to help them. That’s the problem here in America. They wonder whether or not there is a gratitude level that’s significant enough in Iraq.

Damn those arrogant brown bast*rds in Iraq! How can they not be grateful for all we’ve done to for them?

From the Associated Press:

The United Nations said Tuesday that more than 34,000 Iraqi civilians were killed in sectarian violence last year, nearly three times the number reported dead by the Iraqi government.

The U.N. report also said that 30,842 people were detained in the country as of Dec. 31, including 14,534 in detention facilities run by U.S.-led multinational forces.

At least 470,094 people throughout Iraq have been forced to leave their homes since the bombing in Samarra, according to the report.
