Bush doesn't want Iraqi-Shiite PM to rule
Maybe I'm crazy, but dontcha think that BushCo should have carefully considered what exactly was going to happen if any 1 of the religious/ ethnic groups came to power in Iraq? NYTimes: "Shiite politicians said that the American ambassador has told Shiite officials to inform the Iraqi Prime Minister al-Jaafari that Pres Bush does not want him to remain the country's leader in the next govt. It is the 1st time the US has directly intervened in the furious debate over the country's top job (yeah, right... like those elections didn't have BushCo written all over them), the politicians said, and it is inflaming tensions between the US and Shiite leaders." I'm shocked that Bush didn't just come out say this to him: "We bought and paid for your job camel-jockey. Don't make me send in a black ops guy to knock you off." And speaking of death, destruction and GOP bullshit... check this hoopla out: Congressional candidate Howard Kaloogian (R) has posted a photograph on his campaign website which he claims to have recently taken in downtown Baghdad, to show how "calm" and "stable" the city was during his visit... except it is not Baghdad. It is most probably a pix of some city in Turkey. Peruse the comments to see how compelling the evidence is that this pix was taken in Turkey and NOT Baghdad let alone anywhere in Iraq... esp since it appears that Howard's site may have scrubbed the pix. What a lying sack of green oozing pus he is. He'll fit right in with his fellow immoral GOPers.
