Shorter U.S. ambassador to Iraq: "Hey, you know we hate to bomb and run but you know how it is: so many countries to invade, so little time. Let us know how that insurgency thing works out."
FROM BACK IN SEPTEMBER, we had this:
"As Iraqis prepare to vote on their constitution in October and elect a permanent government in December, we must be prepared for more violence," [Bush] cautioned, adding that extremists sought "to set off a civil war."
So it's not like this imminent civil war should come as any surprise, should it? It's not as if the Bush administration can claim to have been blind-sided by this, can they?
Just watch them try, anyway.
