We need a laugh

The Iraqi Government won’t give our clowns or oil companies their oil.
The morons Cheney and Bush don’t even know how to set up a proper puppet government.
So 4,000 of our boys died there - for nothing.
Let’s get out of there now.
The Iraqis won’t obey Cheney’s orders and bring in a new law to share the country's vast oil wealth with us and distribute what’s left among the various local groups.
The prospects for quick oil grab received a setback Sunday when the country's Sunni vice president told reporters in Jordan that the proposed legislation gives too many concessions to foreign oil companies.
"We disagree with the production sharing agreement," Tariq al-Hashemi told reporters on the sidelines of an international conference hosted by the Geneva-based World Economic Forum "We want foreign oil companies, and we have to lure them into Iraq to learn from their expertise and acquire their technology, but we won’t give them big privileges."
The bill also faces opposition from the Kurds, who have demanded greater control of oil fields in Kurdish areas. Kurdish parties control 58 of the 275 parliament seats.
Iraq's Cabinet signed off on the oil bill in February and sent it to parliament, a move that the Bush administration hailed as a major sign that our invasion had succeeded. But parliament has yet to consider the legislation.
Al-Hashemi is among three leaders of a Sunni bloc that controls 44 seats. Together, the Kurds and the Sunnis have enough legislative muscle to delay passage of the measure, which is likely to draw opposition from some Shiite lawmakers, too.
