"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Time - Days of Rage and Peril

You have got to give this "photo essay" a view. Iraq is hell in a hand basket.


I'm not one to say all is well or that Iraq is perfect now that the most recent elections have taken place, but please give me a break. This is yet another example of the MSM barely containing their glee at what Bush hath wrought.

One complaint I have heard that I love is the one that began at the onset (and still continuing) regarding how do we have the right to impose "Democracy" on Iraq, which is now beginning to blossom into, how can you allow elections and the possibility of the Iraq government becoming an enemy of the US. This, as well as others is an argument that cannot be beaten due to it's morphing and lack of reality.

There is always going to be the bad with the good in Iraq, at least in the near term, but none of us will get a real idea if lead by the MSM. If all is doom and gloom, why on earth would we want to be there, I can certainly understand that, however as I've said before, that is statistically an impossiblity. Were the media to portray the day in and day out in Iraq as it truly is, people could weigh for themselves how they feel about the situation, but this will not happen I'm afraid. They've made their bed and they are going to make us sleep,eat and drink in it. I'm sure some that would read this (is there anyone out there? I don't blame you), will react that this is what Bush has done to us with his lies. That is true through the very narrow view/prism that they choose to see. The media, and Time is a great example here, magnifies this small piece of a greater puzzle. This is not to deny that all is not well, but reality is not scripted as the media would prefer it be.

Iraq is not the US, so of course adverse reactions to results of the election can be quite hellish and have dire consequences. This reaction to the results comes from a majority of Sunnis (yes there are Shia included). Does anyone recall how it has been in the US since Bush "stole the election" in 2000? How odd can that, which, is playing out be if the same happens here? Ultimately strings are being pulled, the thousands marching, rioting, what have you are organized and brought into frenzy by those that see a use for it.

This post election scenario is right out of the Democratic party's play book since Bush's first inauguration.
