Ted Rall for December 14, 2006
Woman: You're Fate? Woman: Yup. And I wait for no woman. You're destined to die in Iraq's inevitable civil war. I can't change that. But I will offer you a choice. I can send the Americans home now. You'll be shot to death in 6 months. OR I can keep 'em in place another year or two, in which case you'll get shot 6 months after that. Well? Woman: Gimme option 2. Woman: Bad call. The prolonged U.S. presence strengthens the insurgency. Woman: #*@! I.E.D! Fate Meets Fatima in Fallujah.
