Now that's diplomacy
Condi Rice demonstrated her skill as Secretary of State by mocking and taunting Moqtada al-Sadr. Of course, she works for the guy who famously taunted insurgents with the line "bring it on."
She said: "He is still living in Iran. I guess it's all out war for anybody but him. His followers can go to their death and he will still be in Iran."
The result was one of the worst nights of fighting recently in and around Sadr City.
You see, Condi can taunt al-Sadr from the relative safety of the Green Zone while American and Iraqui soldiers have to deal with the rebellious Shites.
What next? Insulting al-Sadr's mother? Condi: "Moqtada, your mama's so fat that Osama bin Laden is hiding in her navel."
