April Fools Trophy of the Century...
Candidate Number One
Al Maliki, who I cannot Friggin believe just stated today that Last week’s battles IS A SUCCESS!!! Is he pulling an April Fools on us??? Is that possible? Article
BAGHDAD - Iraq's prime minister says the military operation to clear the southern city of Basra of Shiite militia violence has been a "success."
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said in a statement Tuesday that his office will recruit 10,000 more police and army forces and will move to enhance public services in Iraq's second-largest city.
His comments come after a peace deal between radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and the Iraqi government has brought a tense calm following a week of clashes.
The ferocious resistance by militia fighters has left the U.S.-backed prime minister politically battered and humbled within his own Shiite power base.
But he says the crackdown achieved "security, stability and success" in Basra.
Candidate Number Two:
Bush, who back in May 2003, stated that “We have prevailed”
Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country.
Candidate Number Three:
McCain: Back in March 2006
"There are neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today," he said, when asked to highlight something positive about what American forces have been able to accomplish in Iraq.
Yup, he forgot to mention he was there wearing his high tech bullet proof vest, and twenty or so security guards and tanks!!!
Candidate Number Four:
The one and only Muqtada aka Muti, aka "Sayder" who in February said he wants to concentrate on his studies!!!
Al-Sadr said his withdrawal from public view was motivated in part by his desire to focus on his studies to become a mujtahid, or a religious authority.
But he made clear that he remained in charge of his political movement — his loyalists have 30 of parliament's 275 seats — by personally overseeing the work of a ruling committee."Who among you doesn't want me to be a mujtahid?" he said. "I have given the community five years (of my life), now I want a few years to study."
