Bush Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Iraq is dangerous, and it's dangerous because terrorists want us to leave.
-- George W. Bush
Bush: If they invite us to stay, then we'll go. They've gotta invite us to stick around.
Bremer: (to Terrorists) What would you say about inviting us to stick around?
Bremer: --you don't have to mean it or anything--
Terrorists: You can die -- no one's immune. You can both die.
Bremer: (turning away) I can't help you, Dubya.
Terrorists: We didn't know you were George Dubya Bush when we said you were occupying . . . . If we draw on you, you'll kill us.
Bush: There is that possibility.
Bremer: No, you'd just be killin' yourselves. So invite us to stick around, why don't you?
Terrorists: (tremblng with fear) . . . stick around why don't you?
Bush: Thanks, but we got to be going.
Just another day out on the wild frontier.
With apologies to William Goldman.
