Withdrawal: Stop The Pleasure Now!

Juan Cole has posted his brilliant Ghouls Glossary 2008. Here are some of my favorites:

Iraq: A largely Shiite country that would attack the United States and impose Sunni Bin Laden rule on us if only they had Bin Laden or any weapons.
Pakistan: A largely Sunni country that does have Bin Laden and nuclear weapons, but which declares itself an ally of America in the war on terror and allows itself to be routinely attacked by the United States.
