Major Operations Ended, Again

Looks like someone in the new Iraqi puppet government is dancing on strings provided by the Bush administration:

"It is with all pleasure that I announce to you that operation New Dawn has been concluded," the minister of state for national security, Qasim Dawood, said at a news conference in Baghdad, as Marine artillery and aerial gunships continued to pummel Fallujah 35 miles to the west.

"Major operations have been brought to a conclusion."

Where have we heard that before?

...my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.

The whole invasion of Fallujah and what's going on in Mosul, etc., presumably being "minor".

I have an odd feeling that Dawoud's happy little statement will be even less prescient than Bush's.
