Minister of Information

  1. How do you feel about his daily announcements about how well the war is going for Iraq? Myself I find it amusing in a very subdued way of course. Can't laugh out loud about anything in a war, just to h orrible. It is almost as if he is providing a bit of comic relief in the middle of Hamlet.

    At first I laughed but then again, it's really sad. I started feeling very badly for the dude...who knows? His family might be under threat as he speaks nonsense everyday.

    At first I thought, "do they think the Iraqi citizens are THAT stupid?"

    But I agree w/Furball. The man probably has a gun pointed at his head everytime he speaks.

    Personally I am waiting for the MoI speech where he is standing there saying there are no coalition forces in Baghdad and the damn tank drives right up his butt.....or the jdam knocks him on the top of his head.

    He did not show up this morning. There is a tank parked in the spot where he usually gives his speech.

    I just think that they are doing to much to have the media risking their lives to keep us up to date. I know I sure wouldnt be over there. I have family over there that I talk to at least once a week. And as we're talking I can hear planes and jets flying over head. I hate the fact that this so called "war" is being drawn out for so long when Bush said it will only take a couple of weeks. I think that he is confussed and dont know what to do now. thats just my opinon on all of this.

    Somehow that is ironically funny to me. However, I would hate to be in his situation (under a tank and all)....

    Denial is a very comfortable place to stay.

    That said, we were cracking up the other night watching this yahoo. Delusional would be a good descriptive word for him....needs a psych consult IMO. I swore I saw smoke swirling behind him during one of his announcements that the Americans were not in Baghdad.:chuckle

    Do you think this is what he sees in his perverse little mind?
