Very good. Now that I have your attention, kind reader, I'd like to start over...
The War In Iraq is a Colossal Fraud
What are we up to now, twenty-seven thousand dead Americans? Ah, yes, my mistake, hundred, whatever. It's all a scam, anyway. And for what? Secuuuuurrrrityyyyy?? Demmmmocccccracccccyyyyyy???
