What's the Price of Gas Matter to a Pair of World Class Liars?

On the Price of Petrol

I don't know to how many Americans it matters, but for what it's worth:

The Iraqi Coalition Casualty Count (ICCC) tells us that since Bush's un-provoked, unnecessary and largely unilateral invasion and occupation of Iraq (UULUIOI), we have lost per day, on an average, 2.31 service men and women to hostile action in Iraq.

Last month, April, we lost 2.67 fatalies per day due to unfriendly fire. This month, the ICCC tells us we are on track to lose 7.6 of our sons and daughters to the hostility of the Iraq chaos Bush ignited.

So, my brothers and sister, compute [i]that[/i] into the cost of your gasoline when you pull up to the pump to "fill'er up" this weekend.

One Liar to Another Liar

IMHO, by his earlier denying of the holocaust, Ahmadinejad sacrificed a lot of his credibility about asking Bush to come clean about Iraq. (One liar calling another a liar.) However, there's some fresh wiggle room provided in this letter, when Ahmadinejad seemingly is willing to "assume" events pertaining to the holocaust "are true": does that he is asking give Israel carte blanch to do its ethnic cleansing in the West Bank?

Because of my first point above, I'm not bullish on most of the content in Ahmadinejad's meandering letter. What I want to see most is a demand raised my more people that "my government" (the two words the use of which embarrass me the most these days) fooking recognize the Government in Tehran.
