The Mother of a thousand tactical errors, Condi, has joined with the Father of Inventive Lies, Straw, to enter Iraq secretly and then to not so secretly twist Jafaari's arm and basically perform a coup that will terminate him. This is democracy, Bush/Blair style.
Secretary of State Rice and British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Monday that while it is up to the Iraqi people to chose their own leaders, the international backers who have spent blood and money to end a dictatorship here have a right to expect that it will happen quickly.
Neither Rice nor Straw pointed to any specific accomplishment from a day and a half spent huddling with nearly all of Iraq's squabbling factions. But they said their message that Iraq must quickly form a government of national unity got through.
"We are entitled to say that whilst it is up to you, the Iraqis, to say who will fill these positions, someone must fill these positions and fill them quickly," Straw told reporters at a news conference.
What if they chose Saddam? America is still ticked off at the Iranians and Venezuelans for choosing the wrong person to run their countries! Didn't oil pumping countries know that one is allowed only vicious dictatorships like the one running Saudi Arabia? So long as an American puppet is "chosen" then all is well. For the illegal invaders to snarl that we spent a lot of money and blood illegally invading so by gummy, they better give us something back for all that! Well, even Hitler didn't have such chutzpah!
Two car bombs exploded in Baghdad on Monday, killing a bystander and wounding half a dozen others. Gunmen shot down six people, including a child, in a market area of the southern city of Basra, police said.
Also Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw urged Iraqi leaders to form a government as soon as possible to curb the bloodshed and rein in sectarian militias behind much of the violence.
Violence between Shiite and Sunni Muslims has escalated since the Feb. 22 bombing of an important Shiite shrine in Samarra.
More religious shrines blown up, more ministers murdered, more assassins assassinating, more professors killed, more of total chaos. Bush knows that polls show Americans will press for this war to be terminated once our dead soldiers number 2,500 and wounded, 30,000 and we are right on the verge of this magic toll so he is keeping the troops under wraps so they won't be killed at the astonishing rate Iraqis are killing each other.
Which means the chaos is only going to grow. So Straw and Condi secretly sneak into this broiling hell hole to secretly give imperial orders to the coalition that supposedly won the fake election which we are basically ripping up. The horror of watching two very unpopular governments ordering one that is much more popular than the ones in either Britain or America, is truly an amazing emotional experience.
Neither Blair nor Bush listen to their citizens. Poll after poll show that neither Americans nor Brits support this stupid war and want to continue to pour wealth down this rat hole yet both Bush and Blair claim they have the political right to stomp on popular opinion anyway. In Britain, due to the existence of three parties, one can hold power without the consent of the majority of people. In America, this is done by rigging voting machines, preventing the other party's supporters from voting and of course, using the media to attack only one party during election cycles.
This has produced the most corrupt and venal one party rule that is increasingly so unpopular, it will go down in flames if the next election is a cheat yet again!
For Bush and Blair to order Iraq to do what neither will do at home is irritating and I wish both men could be put on CIA secret planes and flown into Iraq and let these Katzenjammering twins poke Iraqi voters in the eyes, personally.
I know that will not last more than five seconds.
