Switching sides

This headline in the TimesUK about the intra-Shia war in Basra says it all:

Iraqi police in Basra shed their uniforms, kept their rifles and switched sides

I don't really know how many 'sides' there are in Iraq, but it appears to me that the U.S. is arming them all so they can fight it out amongst themselves to see who will have the honor of throwing us out.

We used to play a game in Marine Corps recruit training called 'Switch'. Here's how it went: you put one thumb in your mouth and the other in your ass. At the signal, 'switch'.

I got an idea: let's divert the faulty ammo we're sending to Afghanistan to Iraq. Oughta be good fer a few laughs...
