Back to Iraq

I just got an email from Michael Yon. He'll be flying out from Singapore and be in Baghdad via Kuwait on the 19th 25th-26th. I asked him to see if he could make it to Hurriyah while he's in town. He does happen to be pretty good with a camera.

AP's Kathleen Carroll should be breaking out in a cold sweat right about now...

Update: If there at the same time, Maybe Michael can have lunch with Michelle Malkin, who has accepted Eason Jordan's invitation to come over and hunt for the elusive Jamil Hussein, which is pretty much like looking for Nessie in the desert.

I'd advise Michelle to bring along plenty of Lysol wipes if she's going to be near Jordan, however. As Jules Crittendon attests, Jordan is as slimey as they come.

12/16 Update: As I just got email about this, I want to clarify a point:

Michael Yon's return to Baghdad is not related to the Malkin/Jordan snipe hunt for Jamil Hussein; Yon was already planning his way back "in-country" before Jamilgate emerged, and his only involvement is offering Malkin advice and gear. The timing is entirely coincidental.

I'd like to get you on record as to whether or not you believe Michelle Malkin will actually travel to Baghdad.

I *know* that she doesn't have the courage to go.

How about it? Are you willing to go on record declaring - unequivocally and without qualifications - that Michelle will visit Baghdad within the next 6 months?

We won't accept "Eason Jordan refused to pay" as an excuse for not going, either. We know that Michelle can afford to go if she really wants to.

Will one chickenhawk defend the honor of another chickhawk?

This little game you people are playing could get very scary very easily once one of you actually starts believing in the bullshit you've been spewing. I can just picture Michelle Malkin walking through Baghdad with her video camera, collecting "evidence" that the AP doesn't want us to see...

Actually, I can't.

There's no way Malkin is going to Baghdad. We all know it. Are you going to continue to pretend that you believe she's going or is your silly game over?

Why do you seem so amazed?

She'll hardly be the first conservative citizen-journalist to head over, and I'm not even counting the hundreds of mil-bloggers that have gone and reported from the front lines. She may be among the first female non-military conservative bloggers to head over, however, and I do think she'll make the trip.

Well, Avenger, the game is afoot. Actually, since Michelle has demonstrated far higher intelligence than anyone in the MSM, I personally hope that she goes. As for the AP, well, schools of journalism exist to provide jobs for those who flunk out of real college courses.

Chickenhawk? I think 2003 called and wants its putdown back.

No weasel-words. Spell it out.

Will she or won't she go?

Posted by: The Liberal Avenger at December 14, 2006 10:27 AM

Yes, if Eason goes, Michelle will go.

Hey, dumbass, I can't speak for CY, but I can speak for Daily Pundit. Yeah, she'll go. Definitely. She's got more guts than you losers could scrape together out of a bowl full of Michael Moore - and you.

What part of "I do think she'll make the trip" are you having trouble understanding?

I tried to keep it simple by using single syllable words, but did I string along to many in a row for you to follow?

No Child Left Behind was obviously a failure...

Michelle will go, and I'm going to give Jordan the benefit of the doubt on this new venture. Perhaps he is seeking redemption, or wants to tell the stories he could not earlier.

I think Michelle will jump at the opportunity to drive a stake through Kathleen Carroll's heart. I think she's Baghdad bound. Eason Jordan has overplayed AP's hand with a reckless bluff and he's about to get called.

Even if Malkin goes anywhere near Iraq she'll be just like every other rightwing pundit that's gone there and not poke her nose outside the Green Zone without being surrounded by a heavily armed and armored convoy of American troops and/or securtiy "contractors". She'll pull a Laura "8 days" Ingraham and start boasting about how everyone should listen to her because she bravely went to a safe compound in Iraq for a week and never mind the reporters who've spent months on the streets there or who actually, you know, live there. I mean what do they know about it?

Hey Liberal Avenger:

What difference would it make, you miserable little twit?

Grow up.

Posted by: chzatchky at December 14, 2006 10:52 AM

Let her buy a fallafel alone in Fallujah. We'll see what happens.

Posted by: Sirkowski at December 14, 2006 10:59 AM

I predict her announcing that Eason Jordan will "fail to provide for her security."

Wait and see.

It's guaranteed that regardless of whatever excuse she uses everyone here will lap it up without question.

As I have already had to remove some thoroughly disgusting comments and an ethnic slur coming in from Liberal Avenger's blog, comments this thread is now locked.
