There would be wall to wall coverage if Bush were still in office. With the all mighty Zero in office, they will just bury this.

I am sick and tired of AP stories on Iraq. AP can never just report the news. They always have to tell us what the news means, as if we are too stupid to decide for ourselves.

Ok- was worried. It’s going to be an interesting change with the new PM. Thanks for letting me know you’re safe.

There will be even more trouble when the troops leave. The infidel does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. The infidel does not get to erase the Sunni vs. Shiite feud.
