BAGHDAD -- I don't see a civil war in Iraq. I don't see a constituency for civil war. The vast majority of the people want hope for their families, not to massacre their neighbors or divide their country. A poll conducted in June by the International Republican Institute, a nonpartisan group that promotes democracy, found 89 percent of Iraqis supporting a unity government representing all sects and ethnic communities. No wonder no "rebel army" steps forward to claim credit for vicious car bombs and cowardly executions of civilians.
I see debates among Iraqis -- often angry and sometimes divisive -- but arguments characteristic of political discourse, not political breakdown. The Council of Representatives meets here in Baghdad as the sole legitimate sovereign representative of the people, 12 million of whom braved bombs and threats last December to vote. No party has seceded or claimed independent territory.
Baghdad Bob returns! It must be the air in the palaces on the Euphrates River that turns men into Baghdad Bob. Or maybe the water. Or maybe the food served in our embassy. Whatever it is, how do they do this? I remember how Americans made fun of Baghdad Bob.
Now we have little Pointdexter the XXX snootily saying, he sees no rebellion. Let them eat cous-cous!
I hope he comes home to make this same speech at the 25+ funerals of dead soldiers who died this last three days. He can spout this speech to the widows and crying mothers and snottily purse his petulant lips and spit it out into the eyes of little crying orphans.
Sigh. So, will Congress demand this guy's head? Will he join Rummy in retirement? Or will this crap be allowed to pass into the past and no one lift a finger to stop this clown? At least we can have him put in a mental institution for his own safety.
Aw, just arrest him for being a war criminal. Like all of these guys. And bring the troops home!!!!
And I found this bit very funny. This is Rumsfeld at work in the Pentagon.
