"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Nation Meddling

Iraqis to George: Back off! This is our country, our process.
Sadoun Zubaydi, a Sunni member of the drafting committee, blamed the Americans for interfering in what was supposed to be an Iraqi process. "Bush's hypocrisy is huge - in January he wouldn't allow a postponement of parliamentary elections to allow all groups to prepare properly because he was trying to sugarcoat everything that happens here for his domestic audience," Zubaydi said. "Now, he's calling the Shiites and issuing instructions that they should not ignore the group that was marginalized in those defective elections. ... To the last minute, this supposedly Iraqi process is being dictated by the U.S. government." [...] "Don't follow constitutions of the infidels," influential Sunni cleric Sheik Mahmoud al-Sumaidaei told the congregation Friday at Baghdad's Umm al-Qura mosque. "We don't want a constitution that brings the curse of separation and division to this country."
George, you once stated, if this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator... But guess what? You're not - here nor there. Back off and let the Iraqis build their own nation, without your meddling. Besides, our own nation is in desperate need of rebuilding. You could start with our dilapidated education and healthcare systems.
