"Trust Me: An Iraq History Timeline"
http://blogcritics.org/archives/2005/01/28/090521.php

<snip>

May 28, 2004 - Iyad Allawi, an ex-Baathist hit man and CIA and MI-5 employee is appointed Prime Minister of Iraq. He is called "Saddam Lite", and the hope is that he can get control of his semi-domesticated Troglodyte fellow Iraqis. He is armed, by the way.

Things are going to get better now, we promise!

======
June 28, 2004 - In a surprise move, the United States transfers power back to Iraqis two days early. The ceremony was held in secret to thwart attacks by Iraqi insurgents. Only 30 people were present.

Um, we wanted it to be a surprise. Things are REALLY gonna improve now that these bastards have their 'sovereignty.' Trust me.
======

July 7, 2004 - Things are going so swell that to celebrate the relative peace and calm in the streets, Prime Minister Allawi signs a law permitting him to impose martial law.

This is really a good thing for 'freedom' and 'democracy'!
======

January 30, 2005 - Iraqi elections go off without a hitch. At least ten or twelve people were able to vote, thus insuring a consensus in a country united by its tribal and religious past.

This is great, wonderful, fantastic! No more bombs, killings, or dead American G.I.s! The Iraqis finally have their democracy.
