Nujaifi appealed to the US ambassador for an American military intervention:
Nujaifi said he spoke to US Ambassador Lukman Faily, requesting U.S. support to repel the terrorists’ attack by virtue of the Joint Cooperation agreement between the two countries. Ambassador Faily promised to promptly convey our request to the U.S. administration, Nujaifi said.
This will be almost impossible to do, and entirely impossible to do quickly.
Yeah, right. Like we’re going to do that, now that Bush and Barky poisoned that well for the next thirty years. Thanks, guys.
Besides, Bush and Barky’s black comedy roadshow gives no one any confidence that we wouldn’t botch the whole thing at an even higher cost in American lives than we did before.
Besides, I’ve got lots of popcorn laid by for when Iran goes to open war against Saudi Arabia in Iraq.
