A spokeswoman for Syria’s foreign ministry today called on the United States to pull its troops from Iraq, citing the chaos and terrorism ‘rampant’ in the country. See her comments here.
Is this woman frigging insane? Her name is Bushra Kanafani.
Memo to Ms. Kanafani: You represent Syria. In case you’ve been in England for too long, your country is run by a dictator and terrorists run freely in the streets of Damascus. The truth of this statement is obvious to anyone with half a brain cell. Your country finances terror. Your country harbors terrorists. There is much evidence to support the claim that Saddam loyalists have found safe haven in your cities. You claim we have found no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Could that be because the aforementioned weapons are sitting in your back yard? Do you really want to open up that can of worms?
Or perhaps I should shorten my memo to a sound byte: Do you feel lucky?
People who live in glass houses should not dance around naked in the living room.
Here endeth the lesson.
