U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker is quoted in USA Today as saying that the U.S. has a "moral imperative" to help reduce violence in Iraq.
I often wonder whether morons like Crocker ever actually listen to the words that come out of their own mouths.
The same article noted that the Green Zone has been under attack from Shia insurgents for the last few days. "Rockets have rattled the U.S. compound all week, killing two U.S. government employees. Embassy staffers have abandoned their tin-roofed trailers to sleep in more fortified offices," the report said.
Wait a minute! I thought this was the war where our occupation forces were going to be greeted as liberators. "With flowers," we were told.
So how's that working out for you, Dick?
