Rudy's Surprise

Rudy Giuliani says he's never heard the claim that the US was attacked on 9/11 because we'd attacked Iraq. Guess he didn't read Bin Laden's 1996 "Declaration of War" against the US. Back then old UBL said:

"The youths hold you responsible for all of the killings and evictions of the Muslims and the violation of the sanctities, carried out by your Zionist brothers in Lebanon; you openly supplied them with arms and finance. More than 600,000 Iraqi children have died due to lack of food and medicine and as a result of the unjustifiable aggression (sanction) imposed on Iraq and its nation. The children of Iraq are our children. You, the USA, together with the Saudi regime are responsible for the shedding of the blood of these innocent children.

If Muslims did to us what we did/do to them, it would spawn American Mujahideen, like in the Reagan-era flick, Red Dawn.

Bush and the Bulls

Betcha George Bush is rooting for the Chicago Bulls.

The bulls lost the first three games of their seven-game playoff series to the Detroit Pistons. They astonished fans and critics alike with the clumsiness of their game plans and the ineptitude of their execution. Sort of like how no one can believe the US with the most technologically sophisticated military in history can be doing so badly against a bunch of jihadis who can' t spell Nintendo.

Like the US in Iraq, the Bulls chances seem bleak. No NBA team as ever come back from losing the first three games to win a seven game series. Cue Harry Reid's observation that 'the Iraq war is lost.'

But the Bulls won game four forcing last night's game six which they also won. That was as encouraging to Bulls fans as the news that some Iraqis now reject Al Qaeda was to Bush policy supporters. You can almost hear Bulls head coach Scott Skiles saying "We're making progress."

If the bulls do pull this series out I can hear the president's speech now. "America is the Chicago Bulls of warfare! They said we were down for the count, that no nation had ever or could ever come back from the hole we found ourselves in. But through skill, hard work and really good shooting, we got the job done. " Bush will host the team at the White House, our coach will give the president a game ball which Vice President Cheney will blast with his shotgun.

Of course even if the Bulls somehow come back and vanquish Detroit, they'll have to win two more series to be the NBA champs. So if the miracle comeback occurs don't expect to see our coach landing on any aircraft carriers.
