January 8, 2005, War as Monty Python Sketch

Coalition forces apparently bombed the wrong house near Mosul , killing at least five, and letting "the targets" get away. No word on whether an Islamic wedding ceremony was taking place inside the house.

Doubtless, just more winning of Iraqi hearts and minds as the election on which we are banking everything draws near. If it weren't going to show Al Qaeda "our sensitive side", to quote a mocking Dick Cheney, perhaps a sound truck blaring "We're terribly sorry for any inconvenience" (in English, of course) might be dispatched.

Would that any of this were funny.



Gosh I hope those elections over in Iraq occur without too much violence.

I haven't had a laugh about this war since Wolfowitz almost got blown up.

An AP reporter says 14 died, seven kids.

Too bad the guy who actually learned something from Vietnam didn't get elected.
