I'm a F-A-N-A-T-I-C, Fanatic; I rep Christ till I D-I-E, Fanatic

George Santayana- "Fanaticism consists in redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim."

Via Think Progress:
Condoleezza Rice mocks Sadr as a coward.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice mocked anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr as a coward on Sunday, hours after the radical leader threatened to declare war unless U.S. and Iraqi forces end a military crackdown on his followers.”[...] VetVoice’s Brandon Friedman notes that this echoes Bush’s “Bring ‘em on.”
That's rich coming from Rice who has to sneak into Baghdad unannounced for a six hour tour and still has to duck and cover several times in the Green Zone during her stealth visit.

Just like her boss has to sneak in and out, and her boss's boss has to sneak in and out of Iraq.

Oddly enough, the Iranian president announces his visit ahead of time and is actually greeted with hearts, flowers and a Red Carpet and speaks inside and outside of the Green Zone.

And in related news:
U.S. and Iran find common ground in Iraq's Shiite conflict
It's hardly an original thought, but CondiLiar's challenge to the second most powerful faction in Iraq smacks of Bush stating "Bring 'em on"

And we all know how that turned out when he made that speech in July 2003.
