Iraq is greater than all other wars?

I read this and couldn't stop laughing, so I had to snag and share with everyone who hasn't read it. :-)


Iraq is, like, every war combined

Wow. I didn't realize Iraq was so ginormous a war!

President Bush compared the fight against terrorism to both world wars and other great conflicts of the 20th century as he tried to reassure an increasingly skeptical public on Monday to support U.S. military involvement in Iraq.

So, Iraq is like both world wars, plus Korea, plus Viet Nam (both the French and American editions), plus the Falkland Islands, plus Grenada, plus the Gulf War, plus Kosovo, plus the Spanish-American War ... combined! Or something like that.

Such a humongous war should generate a call for sacrifice, shouldn't it? Tax raises to pay for the war. A draft to populate our depleted ranks. I mean, such sacrifices were made during those previous wars, weren't they? And they were only mere shadows of this war.

Oh, and he also repeated the words "9-11" five times, in case anyone has forgotten the massive terrorist attack that has nothing to do with Iraq, perpetrated by people who came from and/or still run loose inside the borders of so-called allies like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

Well, since it's that important, I guess sacrifices will indeed have to be made. As long as they don't start rationing sugar...I really like stuff with sugar in it.

This might work out cool since I have four old tires to get rid of. Once they start a rubber drive, I won't have to pay to have them disposed. Awesome.

Buy War Bonds!
