This is a bit on the light side. Nothing inferred in any of this. Given your choices, who is your "MVP" of this war? (Put up for nomination in no particluar order).

-George W. Bush
-Don Rumsfeld
-Pfc Jessica Lynch
-Saddam Hussein
-"Baghdad Bob"
-The Iraqi People
-The Embedded Media
-Al Jazeera

Again, I'm trying to make this not-so-serious.

My vote has to go to "Baghdad Bob". Who else could make us laugh in the middle of death and destruction?  Smile

MVP - the Special Ops team that rescued Pct. Lynch

GM of the Year - George W. Bush
He sets his sights high and despite some of the home crowd's displeasue, he remained resolved and maintained his course to win the championship

Coach of the Year - Donald 'Rummy' Rumsfeld
A bold gameplan that many ex-coach's balked at. Rummy's response: "That's why you're ex-coaches, beootches."

Rookie of the Year - Baghdad Bob
After most of the starting linup was blown up early, Bob comes off the bench chucking bullshit from WAY past the 3 point circle nailing every single one. Unfortunately, new ownership took over the team and Bob was immediately placed on waivers.

Unsung Hero Award - that Larry Bud Mellman look-alike that played Saddam after the first night.
Not a nornal roster player, this player was activated, pulled out of bed, and asked to give a clutch performance. His poise and clarity was only eclipse by his glasses.

And finally:
Congrats to Jacques "Strap" Chirac for winning the dubious award of Minor Leaguer of the Year  Big thumbs up

Are you sure you want to be a professional standup comic?
How about a nice career in accountancy? Wanna be a comptroller? Huh? It's a very comfortable living!

I second Mohammad, tha Iraqi who saved Pvt. Lynch.

My vote goes for the 3 Iraqis who told the US that Saddam was in a position to be struck and that started the war early.

1. _________ ___________, 1st of the 75th Rangers. Come home safe soon.



An honorable mention goes to Lt.General William Wallace, USMC, who had the balls to say the initial thrust into Iraq was FUBAR'd....and the guts to change tactics and make it work.

Best war correspondent award, David Bloom Rip.

Best one liner of the war. "We are not the LAPD" Awarded to whoever told that the news media when asked why they wanted them around when searching WMD sites.

Ballsiest move by a indigenous personnel award , That lawyer that tipped of the US to Lynch's location.

Stupidest move. The Iraqi Ministry of Information who said that we where 100 miles away from the airport, so they loaded up a couple of land rovers with ITN reporters and headed out there. They Got about two thirds of the way in when they started taking artillery

The "My career is S&%$" award. Disgraced "Scud Stud" Peter Arnett for his Iraqi television interview.

Most unexpected: Bombing Baghdad at dawn hours after the deadline ended. Even if we winged the person we where targeting, that will go down in history of one of the great intel operations of the war.

Worst Assumption by an enemy force, "The US can't handle casualties"

Worst Assumption by a Colalition force, "The Iraqi's will fight honorably"

Best comment by a network news Anchor......Tom Brokaw.

Who during an on air conversation with a correspondent at the Palistine Hotel the day the Marines reached it, commented after being told that the Iraqi Information Minister had not shown up for his daily briefing.

"He is probably out getting fitted for a dress"




That was on air and I couldn't belive he said it when I heard it.  Wow!
