    A Man with a Vase

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    I am trying to make sense out of the media news reports this week.

    First we have Donald Rumsfeld at a press conference angrily denying that there is any looting going on in Iraq. According to him there is only \"one man with a vase\" walking around Baghdad. Rumsfeld is mad because newspapers are showing the picture to make people believe that there is looting.

    Then today, I read in the paper that: \"Looting Thwarts Plans for Quick Iraq Recovery\".

    How much damage can one man with a vase do? What am I missing here?

    It was actually slightly more than a single vase. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    At least 170.000 items were reported to be taken or destroyed from Baghdad Museum only.

    Maybe it was a vase of mass destruction.

    Donald Rumsfeld is America\'s answer to Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf. Another person who is quite capable of stating anything publicly that can further his totalitarian aims.

    \"It\'s the same picture of some person walking out of some building with a vase and you see it 20 times and you think, my goodness, were there that many vases? Is it possible that there were that many vases in the whole country?\" --Rumsfeld
