President Bush barely mentioned the war in Iraq when he met with Republican senators behind closed doors in the Capitol Thursday morning and was not asked about the course of the war, Sen. Trent Lott, R-Mississippi, said.So the new strategy is to mock those who worry about the Iraq war...and the fact that more Americans have died in Iraq than in 9/11...and that things are apparently a lot worse than anybody wants to admit. And...THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME TO ME?? Ladies and gentlemen, the (roughly) fourth-most powerful man in America.
"No, none of that," Lott told reporters after the session when asked if the Iraq war was discussed. "You're the only ones who obsess on that. We don't and the real people out in the real world don't for the most part."
Lott went on to say he has difficulty understanding the motivations behind the violence in Iraq.
"It's hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what's wrong with these people," he said. "Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israelis and despise their right to exist? Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me."
If I punch a wall right now like I want to, and I break my hand like I figure I will, can I sue?
