I suspect if he isn’t dead he will be.

Time for Obama’s friends to take control.

Being dead would be a “stable condition” after suffering a health crisis. There is no condition much more stable then being dead.

There is a big showdown between Kurdistan and Baghdad over oil

Talabani is a Kurd

Don’t know all the details of where he stands but the PM doesn’t like what is happening in Kurdistan right now.

Maybe it was time for Talabani to go.

“He’s not pining, he’s gone to meet his maker. This Islamist is no more. This is an ex-Islamist.”

“I guess I’d better replace him then....how about a slug?”

“Well, can it talk gibberish about the Great Satan?”

“Nnnnot really.”

“Then it’s not a bloody replacement, is it?”

“How about Barack Obama then?”

“Much better, thank you.”
