Who killed the Sheik?

Well duh ... who created the Sheik?

Served his purpose, gave his little speech for the rednecks back home, did the Bush photo-op thing, and exited stage left, which leaves one wondering ... who will enjoy his newly acquired millions?

Have you noticed how many bad guy patsies in Iraq have been named Abu?

Notice to Abu’s everywhere. If someone from the West approaches you with promises of wealth, if you’ll just pretend for a while to be someone else ....

RUN!

Who controls Iraq???
We do, I don’t think we would allow any other force to do the killing and dictating, do you???
We are the “#1 almighty power.”
We are fighting this war for Jesus. Don’t forget it!

There is one thing the US does not want to happen in Iraq and that is peace and tranquility, cause then we wouldn’t have an excuse to stay on, would we?

Just ask Bush/Cheney because they’re champions of killing friend with “friendly fires”. From this point of view we learnt an excellent lesson that is never make friends with cruel beasts !

Who killed him? George and his Neocon buddies did,  along with several hundred thousand others. And the body count will continue to climb just like the oil company profits they’re attached to.
