Tony Snow (ball chance in hell)

From Whitehouse Spokesman Tony Snow
In discussing why a partition of Iraq wouldnt be prudent

" The fact is Iraquis look upon themselves as Iraquis, as the descendants of a Mesapotamian civilization that has been around for a very long time. And they see themselves as a nationality, rather than unmeltable ethnic groups."

Now I've never been to Iraq or the middle east or belonged to any think tanks and only have a bachelors degree, and will concede that they may well think of themselves as a nationality (excluding the Kurds) BUT get a reality check Tony - we all get the point now that Iraqui nationality isnt the issue here - before they think of themselves as Iraquis you can be damn sure they think of themselves as Shia and Sunni.
There lies the problem. Hell even Saddam knew that much about his country. I hope this ends well but with every passing day - it just doesnt seem that it will. And when/if it does all go to hell, the only "winners" will be the Kurds. And those Iraqui nationals you speak so fondly of will continue to kill Iraqui Shia's and Iraqui Sunnis.Without any thought that they are all Iraquis. Much like American yankees killed American confederates.

Hey leave Blair alone. The fact that the man is too stupid to run that country makes me money.

Someday is today.
