Discussion Topic for Monday, January 10, 2005
Regular readers might recall that back on the 21st of December in our Happy Solstice Edition we took issue with a statement that Commander Bunnypants made to the effect that "...15 of Iraq's 18 provinces are relatively stable..." and we demonstrated to our entire satisfaction that he was full of it.
Now we find that he's at it again. He recently deigned to have a few words with the press and he said that 14 of Iraq
's 18 provinces "appear to be relatively calm." Relative to what, we might well ask, but hey. We already know he's talking out his butt.
No, the question that burns in our minds is this: Which province did he decide went bad?
After all, fifteen provinces were 'relatively stable' just two weeks ago and now only fourteen are 'relatively calm'! And for the lives of us, we can't figure out which one he decided got worse!
Help us, dear readers! If you thought like GW Bush (try slugging down a fifth of cheap vodka and whapping yourself repeatedly in the forehead with a ball peen hammer) and you were looking at the situation in Iraq, which province would you choose as being relatively less calm? And why?
As always, post answers here and news below. Thanks!
