Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld & Co. should go get their shower of flowers & chocolates on streets of Iraq

I believe it was Bush administration advisor Richard Perle who said the Iraqis would greet our invasion with flowers and chocolates, but now some eleven years later, the top Bush administration officials have been far too modest and delayed collecting the adoration of the Iraqi people they so richly deserve.

However, now that they are long out of office, and the move couldn't possibly be seen as a cheap stunt for short term political advantage, they should go.

Walk the streets, shake the hands, and admit matter-of-factly that they are the ones who made Iraq what it is today.

I think it would be a cathartic experience for all of us, Americans and Iraqis alike.

5. that is a sign of the highest respect over there--and a tradition we should adopt here

or return to our old ways of showering them with overripe fruit and vegetables.

8. No Blackwater escorts would be needed.



Just 1-on-1 with the people, who'd, no doubt, express their true feelings to their, um, liberators.
