The Airing of Grievances
Thursday, June 24, 2004
Following up on my last post about the Iraq handover, the process is apparently going swimmingly, because the insurgents are still trying to make us fail and a shitload of innocent people seem to keep dying.
Just a reminder: if attacks like this happened on a similar scale in the United States, it would be the equivalent of 1,000 Americans dying in one day. 1,000. In other words, the kind of attacks that might indicate a deeper problem than a few ragtag evil doers trying to cause trouble and screw with the handover process.
The Onion provides one of the few moments of levity that can be drawn from this mess.
