Maybe truer than you think

George Bush is being briefed in the Oval Office on the day's Iraq news..  

"Finally, sir," the staffer says, "five Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq today."

Bush goes pale, his jaw hanging open in stunned disbelief. He buries his face in his hands, muttering "My God...My God".

"Mr. President," the staffer says, "we lose soldiers all the time, and it's terrible, but I've never seen you so upset. What's the matter?"

Bush looks up and says "How many thousands are in a brazilian'?"
