    Hey, it isn't our fault our oil is under their sand.

    Now, about Nice...

    Sounds like a very devoted Muslim.

    Dude sat parked on the route for 9 hours prior, when questioned by Police, he told them he was delivering ice cream. They let him sit there for 9 hrs. Wow.

    That's a well-insulated ice cream truck.

    Egypt, Syria, Yemen and Libya are all on them. So there's plenty of blame to spread around. But for Iraq you have to go back to the Halliburton Boyz and the KBR Kittens.

    the people who arbitrarily drew lines on a map dividing up the middle east among colonial powers at the end of WWI.

    Tribal identity, not "national" identity, has driven all the conflicts. If tribal boundaries and national boundaries were the same, many fewer problems.



    or we could say GHW Bush for not taking out Saddam in 1991.




    Or most appropriately (and this is who I blame the most), France's Jacques Chirac. GW Bush had the Security Council of the UN, including Russia and China all lined up to approve international action against Saddam for his failure to comply with UN resolutions requiring inspections for weapons of mass destruction. Then Chirac vetoed it (not Russia, not China).

    It turns out that half of Chirac's government ministers were on Saddam's payroll, accepting bribes under the "oil for food" program that was put in place to alleviate the suffering of the Iraqi people under international sanctions.

    Let's replay the Iraq war as a UN action, not a US action.

    No, just be suspicious of a guy who takes 9 hours to deliver ice cream at an event where there is a large group of people congregating. It's the Polices' job to get a little suspicious of unusual activities like this. Aren't we all encouraged to report suspicious activities to the Authorities?

    And then after doing so, be promptly arrested for a hate crime because your report was racist.

    It's true that if we're ranking the alltime leaderboard, Balfour's in the top ten. So are William Simon and one of history's great finks, Jack Philby. The rest are a bunch of Arabs who ripped off their fellow countrymen in the greatest resource heist in world history.
