"US Troop Deaths In Iraq At Seven Month High"…

posted by Bill Arnett @ 11:49 AM Permalink

…sez the headline from HuffingtonPost, which, I guess means it's time to modify the old, "Greatest Lies of All Time List." So, in no particular order and without getting too risque, here's MY list:
Aw, c'mon, honey, I won't c*m in your mouth again like last time, I promise.

Of course I believe you're a 'good girl' and I'll still respect you in the morning.

Don't foreclose yet! The check's in the mail!

Give us another six months and we will win in Iraq!

The surge is working! We're really making progress now!

The rising death toll for American troops shows we're winning!

The rising numbers of Iraqi fatalities proves the surge is working!

The lack of political progress in Iraq is a sign that the surge is working!

We are not in a recession!

The fundamentals of our economy are sound!

The Iraqi Oil War has nothing to do with oil.

The coming Iranian Oil War has nothing to do with oil.

The coming Venezuela Oil War has nothing to do with oil.

Inflation is low!

Unemployment is down and jobs are up!

Children like going to bed hungry!

Seniors just hate taking medicine all the time.

Israel is in full compliance with U.N. Resolution 242!

And you can get all the truthful important news that counts from Fox News Channel.

ADDITION: "I'm resigning my post in the administration to spend more time with my family."

And remember, we Southerners may not always be right, but by golly we're never wrong. Besides which, I NEVER lie unless I am alone or with someone or under the influence of alcohol, sex, drugs, and rock & roll.

P.S.-UN Resolution 242: The Security Council,
Expressing its continuing concern with the grave situation in the Middle East,
Emphasizing the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war and the need to work for a just and lasting peace in which every State in the area can live in security,
Emphasizing further that all Member States in their acceptance of the Charter of the United Nations have undertaken a commitment to act in accordance with Article 2 of the Charter,
1. Affirms that the fulfillment of Charter principles requires the establishment of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East which should include the application of both the following principles:
(i) Withdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict;
(ii) Termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgement of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force;
2. Affirms further the necessity
(a) For guaranteeing freedom of navigation through international waterways in the area;
(b) For achieving a just settlement of the refugee problem;
(c) For guaranteeing the territorial inviolability and political independence of every State in the area, through measures including the establishment of demilitarized zones;
3. Requests the Secretary-General to designate a Special Representative to proceed to the Middle East to establish and maintain contacts with the States concerned in order to promote agreement and assist efforts to achieve a peaceful and accepted settlement in accordance with the provisions and principles in this resolution;
4. Requests the Secretary-General to report to the Security Council on the progress of the efforts of the Special Representative as soon as possible.
