"Hey, Abdul ... maybe we can cash this at the 7-11"

Bush ranch targeted by Iraqi terror team

"The unidentified members of the Iraqi ''hit squad'' reportedly asked a Mexican doctor and a lawyer to change about $100 million in Iraqi dinars into about $325 million in U.S. currency."

Gee ... not the brightest bulbs in the box, were they? "Oh, hey, nobody will notice us changing A THIRD OF A BILLION IN CASH into yankee dollars!" Stupid fucks. Of course, they COULD have done that pretty easily in some parts of Columbia ... but Columbia is on-board with the "coalition of the willing" and Mexico isn't.

If Iraq is flashing THAT sort of cash, I wonder, when all the dust settles, if we're going to find all SORTS of interesting money trails leading to places like Tom Daschle's re-election fund or Jacques Chirac's swiss bank account.

A great quote ...

"The idea of peace and security -- of living your life well-fed, well-rested, healthy and free from fear of invasion or war -- is a very new concept, but one with which Americans and Europeans are, for understandable reasons, reluctant to part. The people who grab our chins and force us to face reality -- the Churchills, Bushes and Blairs of the world -- are rewarded with some degree of hatred by the self-deluded."
... from The other menace by Mona Charen
