i'm 'bout my paper:
It’s obvious to any observer that America and its teenage president are going through a deteriorating situation on all levels. It’s common practice for U.S. presidents to review the Palestinian problem, in the last minutes of their tenure, to add new touches to the problem that would serve the Jews. Little Bush is making his last visit to offer the [same] support his predecessor extended to Israel. On the other hand, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and Sudan are playgrounds for America to settle its accounts with its foes.
That charming little statement is from Ali al-Nuaimi, the emir of the Islamic Army of Iraq, elements of which play a large role in the U.S.'s Concerned Local Citizens strategy for pony-finding. Via Jamestown's sadly off-line Terrorism Focus.
