Iraq's capital wants the United States to apologize and pay $1 billion for the damage done to the city ... since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.See? I'm not making this up.
Will Obama do that? I think there's a chance he might. He's apologized for everything else. And he's spending money like ... well, I was going to say "a drunken sailor" but I'd rather give my checkbook to a drunken sailor than to Obama. And you would too.
Anyway, what with Obama's track record for foolishly spending money and foolishly apologizing for the U.S., I'm thinking he might.
But, I got a better idea.
Let's put things back like they were.
Let's dig up Hussein (the former Iraqi president, not the current U.S. one) and bring his whole crew back and give them the keys to the government.
And gas some Kurds while we're at it. Throw some folks into some huge industrial shredders. Set up some rape houses. Make some people disappear in the middle of the night...
I'm sure we could do a few things so that they'd forget that Hussein had ever been toppled.
Or, maybe we should give him our Hussein. Saddam's being dead and all might put a damper on his leadership style. Sure, Barack doesn't have the experience -- even after two years in the White House, he's still unqualified to be president of this country -- but I think they ought to give him a chance.
Of course, they'd end up demanding an apology for us inflicting Obama on them. And that would be a legitimate complaint. But, I wouldn't apologize for that.
Not until the idiots that elected Obama here send me an apology. And some cash.
