Replace “Totem Pole” with “Iraqi Freedom,” and that’s about right.
So.Turkey has invaded Iraq. Turkish TV reports that just under a whole division (10,000 troops) has crossed into northern Iraq. Can shit get any more fucked up there?
Also, for the record, this is the kind of understatement the British are famous for:
A senior U.S. State Department official said the land incursion was “not the greatest news.”
Ya think? I’m guessing the Brits might get mad at our State Department for horning in on their massive understatement action.
Say it with me: “No one could have anticipated the Turkish invasion of northern Iraq.”
All we need now is a First Draft pool for time until some Bush official makes the previous statement. I’m gonna go with the Press Secretary in today’s press briefing. Your thoughts?
