This just in...

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has warned that the US will take action against any country seeking to destabilise Iraq.

And who said Americans can't do irony?

This is a joke, right?

Maybe that means America will invade itself ... no, I'm sorry, I of course mean bring freedom and democracy.

Reading the linked piece, basically the American government is saying that there's one rule for them and another for the rest of the world. And they don't understand why much of the world views them as *the* major threat to world peace, etc.? How arrogant and scary are they! :<

There is actually a fairly respectable strand of political philiosophy called American Exceptionalism that proposes just that. It's similarity to the idea that anything you do in the name of Islam is OK, cos it's like, Islam, yeah, would be amusing if it weren't so depressing.

"There is no plan to bomb Iran on the table" (I just put it back in the safe).

She is an agent of the dark lord* and doesn't even try to hide it. Yet for some reason most of America can't seem to see it...

I had to explain to a girl at work why I'm more worried about the US government than the threat of terrorism on the streets here at home. And I didn't even have to mention US environmental policy.

The US has an environmental policy?

And I just need to slip in the necessary disclaimer that nobody around these parts is possessed by knee-jerk anti-Americanism, and there are so many American things we love (Aretha, the Coen Brothers, Hemingway, yellow cabs, JFK conspiracies, Deadwood, Reese's peanut butter cups, etc, etc, etc, and thank you for taking Posh Spice off our hands too) but:

1) Your current president is clearly too stupid to shit in a straight line, even with the assistance of gravity;

2) That thing you call football. It's silly, and it's not football.

(More than BTW, thanks for adding my blog to your blog-roll and sorry for taking so long to realize that you had done so and reciprocate.)
