On How to Lose the (Information) War
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,Since I am too drunk to write, I have decided that I will simply quote the headlines from Al Jazeera - they say it better than I could (sober) anyway.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses, And all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again!
Allawi's Congress speech draws flak
US now wants more troops in Iraq
Gorbachev decries Iraq invasion
Blair urged to act on Iraq captive
No new Ethiopia-Eritrea war, says UN
Allawi: No release of female prisoner
Italian hostages probably alive
US troops seal off Samarra*
Car bombs cause more Baghdad carnage
*Samarra, according to one internet source, is the "largest ancient city in the world," and one of Iraq's "four Islamic holy cities." The Great Mosque - built in 852 - which still stands in Samarra, was the largest mosque in the world before the modern era. So, I guess it's a good thing that we have sealed the city off, and we're bombing the shit out of it.
