Thomas Friedman's Iraq Greatest Hits
There are several quotes from Thomas Friedman from this Iraq timeline of pundits and government officials telling us how wonderful Iraq will be if we just give it more time. I picked Friedman because he maybe the most stupid man on the planet.
Friedman has a history of stating that the next few months will be the turning point for Iraq. Once that deadline has past, Friedman makes a new deadline. He then proclaims 6 more months are needed in Iraq before we will know how the war will turn out. Repaet cycle.
"It might be over in six months."
"The next six months in Iraq... are the most important... "
"...in the next six to nine months..."
"Iraq will be won or lost in the next few months."
"We're in a six-month window here..."
"We're going to know after six to nine months..."
"The next six to nine months are going to tell..."
"It's going to be decided in the next weeks or months..."
"We're going to find out... in the next year to six months."
