Where Have The Rivers Of Chocolate Gone?

The Canadian Islamic Congress is now trying its hand at parody.

To date, the American-led invasion of Iraq has resulted in the deaths of more than 100,000 Iraqis and thousands of Americans. Iraq has been transformed from country with 100% employment and a stable public service infrastructure, into an impoverished nation in disarray, with more than half of its adult workforce jobless. From being one of the leading Middle East states in administration, education and health care, Iraq has fallen to one of the world’s most disadvantaged societies.

The CIC is charging that America’s aggressive Middle East policies are designed primarily to shore up Israel’s military power and economic advantages in the region, while attempting to divert world attention from Israel’s territorial expansion into the West Bank through illegal Jews-only settlements.

CIC national president Dr. “Anyone over the age of 18 in Israel is a valid target*” Elmasry can be contacted at np@canadianislamiccongress.com.

    No war for chocolate!

    That “100% employment” is right up there with Saddam’s election by “100% of the people” in my “Yeah. Right.” list.

    (OT: Anyone know of a language other than English that has a double-positive that equals a negative?)

    Let’s see: “…the deaths of more than 100,000 Iraqis…” Seems to me that most of the Iraqis killed since the fourth week of “the invasion” have been killed by terrorists…

    “…100% employment…” Only if you don’t count all those not employed, which just happened to be a significant number of Shi’ites and Kurds, but, hey, whose counting?

    “…stable public service infrastructure…” I’m sure the grand and glorious arrested leader’s stable public service infrastructure functioned wonderfully, but it seems to me there were reports of significant portions of the population not near any of his “oil-for-food castles” that didn’t have adequate sanitation facilities, let alone running water, electricity, etc.

    What they did have, however, was a band of thugs willing to torture and kill at the slightest hint of disagreement, terror at the mere thought of free expression,…

    Kathy, I’m firmly convinced that the ironic “Right!” was immediate precursor to “yeah, right,” and that we owe the first version to Bill Cosby, from his routine about the Lord and Noah.
