The Islamic Republic Of Iraq Edges Ever Nearer
Curse the neos and their goddam waking nightmare!
The confirmation of the Shia parties' victory in the Iraqi elections has brought one step closer the day that the country becomes an Islamotheocracy, a mini-Iranohell entirely of the neos' making.
Was it for this that 2,000 Americans have died?
To try to justify this result by saying that this was the 'democratic option opened to (Iraqis) by the invasion', as the 'Daily Telegraph' puts it today, is more than a little disingenuous, as at all times and under all circumstances it must be repeated that the rationale given for the invasion of Iraq was the imminent threat posed by Saddam's weapons of mass destruction. Not democracy; not liberty; not the relief of oppression; not the preservation of minorities; it was all about the nukes, first, last, foremost and always.
For the Shias, victory in this election is an expression of the will of God; and if God has said they are to have power, surely another election is heresy?
This disaster is being hailed as an event which is in some way positive, when it is not, and has appeared on the same day on which an equally significant piece of news, the sentencing of Lawrence Franklin to 12 years imprisonment, was buried. Franklin's evidence at the trials of Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman may just show to what extent, just how deeply, the neos have damaged America.
They all deserve to be in jail, for what they have done to Iraq, for sure - but the greatest crime of the neos is most certainly what they have done to the reputation of the USA.
