Time for McCain & Lieberman to do some rug shopping again
...considering the fire sale values they'll be able to get at the moment:
Iraq's government imposed a weekend curfew in Baghdad on Thursday amid clashes between government troops and Shiite militia fighters, and U.S. Embassy staff were told to remain indoors after days of rocket attacks left two U.S. government employees dead.
Sixteen rockets were fired Wednesday and 12 on Tuesday. U.S. Embassy workers in Iraq were told to remain in secure buildings and wear protective clothing as rockets continued to rain down on Baghdad's International Zone.
Also called the Green Zone, the International Zone is a heavily fortified central Baghdad district housing the U.S. Embassy and Iraqi government offices.
Not "heavily fortified" enough, I assume.
But, of course, the primitive child-race of Iraq couldn't possibly fire something as sophisticated as missiles, soooo we know who's REALLY behind the scenes, of course:
A senior U.S. official says the insurgents may have had recent training allowing them to conduct more precise targeting of the rockets, believed to be made in Iran.
And evidently members of the Administration fit in really well with the Preznit, judging by this comment:
In Washington, U.S. State Department official Richard Schmierer said the rocket attacks appear to be coming from fighters affiliated with al-Sadr who were "trying to make a statement" about the government offensive in Basra.
Oh. Well. Y'think?
