Sorry. It was. It was late at night my time and my brain was entering "dead" phase. :)
“Occupiers out! Occupiers out! Muqtada al-Sadr! Muqtada al-Sadr! Muqtada al-Sadr! Long live IRAN!!”
No. I mean I wish I WAS joking (okay, I was joking, but the more I think about it - it isn’t a joke). Obama will wait until after he is elected (IF he is) to say this. Maybe not in so many words, but he will.
“As can be seen by the majority of Iraqis - and Americans, they want the U.S. occupation army out, and that is what we will do. The Occupation of Iraq is over”.
“al-Sadr, the popular leader of the Province, has agreed to meet with us regarding a coalition leadership in Iraq. This is a huge step forward in bringing all leaders into the process of rebuilding Iraq” (shoot - I think President Bush practically said this a long time ago making a brief treaty with Sadr for awhile!?)
“Iran’s quest for clean and efficent Nuclear Energy is a noble quest. By the U.S. providing them with Uranium and technology, we can not only make sure that these materials are going to civilian programs, but we can can bring Iran into the fold of our friendship. And rather than be enemies, we can both fight together our common enemy of Global Warming”.
(Okay - that bit about the global warming was over the top. The rest wasn’t - at least not for Obama.)
