how long do last throes last, anyway?
So de facto President Bush notes that we're moving troops to Baghdad because of worsening sectarian violence. Those "last throes" of violence and insurgency are certainly quite sustained, aren't they Mr. De Facto Vice President Cheney? And Iraq's prime minister is criticizing Israel but not Hezbollah over the situation in Lebanon. Funny, I thought we were told that a new, democratic Iraq would be supportive of Israel. Gosh, another thing the Cheney-Bush Administration got wrong before March 2003.
