Sigh.
A group of Senators have proposed legislation intended to push Iraqis to form a government quickly.

All I have to say is this:
1776: Declaration of Independence
1777: Articles of Confederation written
1781: Articles of Confederation ratified
1783: Treat of Paris concludes Revolutionary War (not ratified until 1784)
1787: Constitutional Convention writes Constitution
1788: Constitution ratified by nine states
1789: First President elected.

13 years.

Are you suggestion that demanding a insta-government is wrong????? (snark)

J, if you're going to try and support my point with wit, I'd appreciate two things:

First, please actually use some wit. If you need to say "snark," when you've finished, then you have not accomplished this goal.

Second, please proofread what you write. "Suggestion" is not a verb. I believe you meant "suggesting."

Now, if you want to disagree with what I'm saying, then you should feel free to sound like an idiot.
