    these are the geniuses making and writing policy the past 7 years...

    Norman Podhoretz: ‘What’s a Kurd, anyway?’

    In his new Atlantic article called “After Iraq,” Jeffrey Goldberg recounts how in 2003, after an event on Kurdistan, neoconservative icon Norman Podhoretz, who is America’s foremost proponent of bombing Iran, asked him “What’s a Kurd, anyway?“:

    Just before the “Mission Accomplished” phase of the war, I spoke about Kurd*istan to an audience that included Norman Podhoretz, the vicariously martial neoconservative who is now a Middle East adviser to Rudolph Giuliani. After the event, Podhoretz seemed authentically bewildered. “What’s a Kurd, anyway?” he asked me.​

    What an idiot. It's obviously a by-product of seperating milk - the kurds and the whey. Jeez what a dope.

    Reminds me of that great moment in political theater, when some guy was up for a high post in Iraq. When they asked him whether he believed Al Qaeda was Sunni or Shi'ite, he said "I would guess they are Shi'ite."

    (Uh, if you don't get it... they're Sunni.)

    The idiot does not know what they are because he is a racist moron who has a picture of Muslims from that area he cannot shed.

    Everyone hates the Kurds ... Iranians, Iraqi's, Syrians etc... The Kurds are known as moderate Muslims who are basically non-violent. Well, nobody really respects the moderates in this country either, they just don't kill us ... I guess that's the way it is.

    The day America started falling apart was the day we stopped laughing at each other.

    Norman Podhoretz... :rolleyes:

    among the most profound ideological pieces of neoconic shyt that's ever been afflicted upon the American populace... right up there with Grover Norquist and Bill Kristol... a PNAC signatory, and a "Guardian of Zion" Award winner... and now Rudy's foreign policy advisor... no wonder Rudy's plummeting... he has an idiot in charge of advising him about the world...

    this is yet another clown who loved the fraudulent 2002 NIE-based White Paper on Iraq, but has cried foul over the recent "Iran's got nothing" NIE of a few months ago.... how convenient...

    "What's a Kurd, anyway?".... :eek:

    what a turdblossom of the lowest order... go retire and fade away, murder advocate...
