CNN "Bwahhaha" headline: "Iraq's leader to U.S.: You don't own me"
Iraq's leader to U.S.: You don't own me

http://www.cnn.com /



Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki told the top U.S. diplomat in Iraq, "I'm not America's man in Iraq," during a private meeting, a senior aide said. Al-Maliki made the same point to President Bush during a video conference Saturday, an Iraqi spokesman said. The White House said it agreed, adding there were no rifts with the Iraqi leadership.

This is the 50th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution, and you may end up like Imre Nagy, I am sure the neocons have their Janos Kadar waiting to take over.

4. The administration probably asked him to say something like this.

So it would give his government some credibility with the Iraqi people.

8. Cue Lesley Gore...
:rofl:


You don't own me, I'm not just one of your many toys
You don't own me, don't say I can't go with other boys

And don't tell me what to do
And don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display, 'cause

You don't own me, don't try to change me in any way
You don't own me, don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay

Oh, I don't tell you what to say
I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

And don't tell me what to do
Oh don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display

I don't tell you what to say
Oh don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want

13. We've paid $500 billion and we're just renting?
Not to mention the several thousand dead and maimed soldiers. Bush just doesn't get good value for his money, does he?

15. Wow, what next?
