i'm almost laughing

Pool Photo by Sabah Arar Representative Mike Pence, an Indiana Republican, said the Shorja market was “like a normal outdoor market in Indiana.” (normal that is if indiana was invaded by aliens from mars who had big ray guns and machines that shot out fire and giant balls that exploded killing everyone around and a squad of bigger uglier martians who went around and kidnapped innocent indianians??? and tortured them for the hell of it)

of course i won't laugh because of what we are doing to the iraqi's country. we're destroying it. we're uprooting people. we're stirring up trouble (and that's the LEAST of it)

i just can't leave this subject alone. i can't. i wonder, did someone accidently injest way too much acid in 1969? if not, how can they be suffering from these hallucinations?

now read what the people who actually live around and work in the market have to say to mccain

McCain Wrong on Iraq Security, Merchants Say

Published: April 3, 2007
BAGHDAD, April 2 — A day after members of an American Congressional delegation led by Senator John McCain pointed to their brief visit to Baghdad’s central market as evidence that the new security plan for the city was working, the merchants there were incredulous about the Americans’ conclusions.

“What are they talking about?” Ali Jassim Faiyad, the owner of an electrical appliances shop in the market, said Monday. “The security procedures were abnormal!”
The delegation arrived at the market, which is called Shorja, on Sunday with more than 100 soldiers in armored Humvees — the equivalent of an entire company — and attack helicopters circled overhead, a senior American military official in Baghdad said. The soldiers redirected traffic from the area and restricted access to the Americans, witnesses said, and sharpshooters were posted on the roofs. The congressmen wore bulletproof vests throughout their hourlong visit.

“They paralyzed the market when they came,” Mr. Faiyad said during an interview in his shop on Monday. “This was only for the media.”
He added, “This will not change anything.”.........
