Today's Cartoon: United States Launches "Operation Swarmer" in Iraq

So what began the day as a "massive air attack" has since been downgraded to a "massive troop deployment", which basically replaces the "Apocolypse Now" visual I had with something more out of "Platoon"... But don't get me wrong; BOTH are very good movies, it was just the "war" that was bad.

What does the United States have against St. Patrick's Day? It seems that it's no longer just a day to pretend you're Irish and drink green beer, but also a day for Iraqis to run for their lives.

Is it because George W. Bush is a recovering alcoholic? If that's the case, then if anybody it's the Irish who should be paying the price for his sobriety; because everyone knows, nothing kills a "buzz" faster than a 500 lbs bunker buster getting dropped on your house.

You know, as difficult as the last three years have been for the Iraqis, it must be even more difficult for the "Irish-Iraqis"; especially around "St. Patrick's Day".

The first time I heard them mention this on TV, I honestly thought they were calling it "Operation: Shawarma".

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the "unofficial" name of it... Or maybe they're just saving that one for later :)
