Georgie speaks

Prelude to the attack on Iran? Georgie's on TV right now trying to justify more sanctions on Iran. He says he's sorry for the people of Iran, sorry sorry sorry, sorry they're probably about to get the shit bombed out of them (okay, he didn't say that last bit, but this all seems eerily familiar, right down to the suspicious findings that tie Iran not to 9/11, but to the war in Iraq). Everyone knows where this is going.

Never mind that: a reporter just asked how long the US can sustain the current situation in Iraq, given the rising body count and no progress on the ground. Ballsy... but it doesn't matter. Nothing fazes Georgie, especially since he had his way with the Democrats a couple of days ago. Georgie's pumped: he says he's ready for more bodies... bring 'em on. He's so ready for more bodies that he plans on feeding another 40,000 of them into the Iraqi meat grinder sometime this year. Is that victory on the march? Smells like desperation to me.

In a bizarrely appropriate swerve out of the topic traffic, Georgie's now suddenly talking about beef. But then, I guess he always was.
