Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Meanwhile, back at the morgue...

3400 dead in Iraq in the month of July. Just in case you're wondering, Iraq's population is about 1/20th that of the United States. So that's the equivalent of 68,000 Americans dying in one month. Furthermore, it's around 40,000 Iraqis dying per year -- or as much per *YEAR* as Saddam is accused of killing during his last *TEN* years in power.

Mission accomplished? Only if the mission was to be ten times worse than Saddam. Congratulations, America, you're worse mass murderers than Saddam was!

In other news, Saddam is on trial (again!) for actions he took during Iraq's civil war where the Kurds tried to secede in 1988. Problem is, it's unclear Saddam did anything different in that civil war than Abraham Lincoln did when he unleashed Sherman to burn his way to the sea. I suppose Abraham Lincoln was a war criminal? Well, I'm sure you'll find some folks in Georgia and South Carolina who might argue that, but really...

Given the news that the Bush administration is quietly considering installing a dictator in Iraq to tame the civil war there, it kinda makes ya wonder, "hmm, why did we invade Iraq again?" I suppose it was because of weapons of mass destruction al Qaeda connections free the Iraqi people bring democracy to Iraq improve Halliburton's profits. Yeah, sounds about right...

"stay the course"

but the road is covered with dead bodies

"stay the course"

but we're heading straight for certain disaster

"stay the course"

but it's turning into civil war, the death rate keeps climbing no matter that we are sending more troops

"stay the course"

but we are failing, the country is reverting back into it's pre-Saddam state, just like we predicted. This "course" hasn't work for the last 3+ years.

"stay the course"

Hey, can someone wake him, he must of dozed, all he keeps saying is "stay the course".

Hey, how do you get the line through the middle of the text? I should be able to do that with MS Word, right?

Err, no, <s> and </s> do the strikeout functionality.

All right, what the hell was I thinking?

"u" and "/u" are for underlining. My bad...
