we’re liberators, not conquerors, got that?

A few days ago, I shared a few links on blunders that have happened since the war on Iraq started a week ago. This one’s the best yet, though: U.S. informally renames airport after Bush. (Thanks to Adnan for sending me the article.)

Update: The New York Times has an article titled Army Depots in Iraqi Desert Have Names of Oil Giants which says that “the 101st Airborne Division had named one central Iraq outpost Forward Operating Base Shell and another Forward Operating Base Exxon.” (Thanks to Dennis for sending me the link!)
