OK, here is the current stupid quote of the day. An un-named E.U. diplomat on the lifting of sanctions in Iraq:
“If you lift sanctions you lift the control of the United Nations in what is going on in Iraq.”
First, is this the same level of control the U.N. exerted for the last 12 years? Secondly, are you trying to say that you’ll blackmail the U.S. with the prospect of starving Iraqis in order to make sure you get your cut? Shame on you.
