Other Things That May Or May Not Be Happening In Iraq

Our president:

But Mr. Bush, who heads to Jordan on Wednesday for two days of meetings with Mr. Maliki, dismissed a question about whether a civil war has indeed erupted.

"There’s all kinds of speculation about what may or may not be happening," he said...

Here's a list of things people are speculating may or may not be happening in Iraq:

1. A vicious, sectarian civil war caused by a brutal occupation

2. All IEDs suddenly transformed into delicious lollipops

3. Muqtada al-Sadr announcing he's leaving Iraqi politics to become president of the National Organization for Women

4. The return of John Lennon and George Harrison from the dead, followed by a Beatles reunion concert in Baghdad which will end with the world's biggest sing-a-long in which all 27 million Iraqis join voices to croon "All You Need Is Love"

Yes, there's all kinds of speculation, and all of these things are just as likely as any other.

WHAT?! There was a BEATLES reunion in Iraq?!


You shouldn't joke about stuff like that, Jon.

Has anyone actually tried to find out how many licks it takes to get to the center of an IED? They might actually have tootsie rolls inside. Perhaps Congress can look into it.

The flowers, you forgot about the flowers.

Have the Iraqis ever seen the Beatles up close? Perhaps we could use look-alikes.
