Time to smack some people upside the head

Hm. It seems that Prince Faisal is not down with this whole invade-Iraq thing:

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal has said that any unilateral military action by the US would appear as an "act of aggression".
Message to Prince Faisal:

Shut up, bitch.

(Via Sean Kirby, who claims to be a nineteen-year-old student. Hah! And I am an almost-forty-year-old spinster who lives alone with a cat! Oh wait -- I am.)

In other news, no-longer-president-but-can't-seem-to-get-over-that-fact Jimmy Cawduh continues to annoy. Now he has signed the UK Mirror's "Not In Our Name" Support Dear Leader Saddam Hussein Anti-War Petition. Message to ex-President Hamster: shut up you goddamn hypocrite.

i was going to post this in my LJ, but thought you might find it more interesting than my friends list. from FOX:

how do you chip away at an paranoid dictator's government without firing a shot?

start rumblings in the opposition world that various ministers are traitors.

the Iraqi defense minister (also a relative) is supposedly now under house arrest. i have no idea how much this reflects the real state of his loyalty. course, this is nothing new.

Unilateral? unilateral? AAARRRRGGGHHHH! If I read the word "unilateral" one more time I'm going to... going to.... Hell, I don't know but it's going to be really really ugly!

Well, at least you only have one cat!

(says the other almost-forty-year-old-spinster who lives with many many cats)

and the one who can't even spell her own nickname!! Irq??

"Irg" is what I think when Mr. Kirby reminds me that he has not actually turned nineteen yet. Irrrgggg....

I like that.

"Shut up, Bitch"

Short, pithy, and right on point.

"Hey, Jimma Earl: Shut up, Bitch!"
"Hey, Faisal: Shut up, Bitch!"
"Hey, Chirac: Shut up, Bitch!"
"Hey, Chretien: Shut up, Bitch!"
"Hey, Schroeder: Shut up, Bitch!"

Oh yeah, this is good.

Oh by the way, update on that arrested minister: it's apparently not true (see the entry for February 19, it's a Blogspot site and it's permalinks are off-key).
