Iraq to invade Baghdad

The Iraqi government announced the invasion of it's capital, Baghdad, today. This announcment coincided with the USA president sneaking into the Green Zone for a few hours, in which he showed how much he trusted the new president of Iraq by not even telling him he was coming. In fact, his staff was so satisified that they were actually able to successfully pull off Bush's sneak into Iraq that they announced the administration was in the midst of a "turn-around". Yes, folks, this is indeed the state of this government.

The new PM is trying to curb the violence by tightening security, imposing curfews, not allowing civilians to carry weapons, etc. But, why are you calling it an invasion by Iraqis? Not that I'm disagreeing with you, I'm just wondering. Are you you're claiming that the civil war (which has been going on for a while now) is increasing in intensity?

It was meant to be ironic sarcasm. The point is that after four years of war, we don't even control the capital, and neither does our puppet government. The reality of Iraq is that it is under the control of sectarian militias, who are byding their time until we leave, so that they can establish an Islamic Republic. The government forces are riddled with these guys as well. A lot of them, many from the "greet us as liberator" Shiites, would very much like to kill Mr. Bush, which explains why he had to sneak into a country we have supposedly subdued. This is actually the second time Iraq has invaded Baghdad, the last time they did it, al-Sadr kicked their asses, which is what he will do again if they jack with him.

The saddest thing about watching this spectacle was seeing that Bush has progressed little from "Mission Accomplished". A lifelong corporate shill who has little if any real leadership ability, we once again get more marketing hype instead of substance as Bush once again comes running from the nearest helicopter to cheer on the valiant victorious troops who fight for The Party.

As to the war increasing in intensity, the entire "we killed Zaquari" marketing hype is to take our attention off of that glaring fact. An average of 250 Iraqis are killed each week, coalition casualities are up, and suicide bomb attacks have spread to Kirkuk, while Shiite militias are now battling each other in once-peaceful Basra. The whole country is coming apart.

Bush better get lucky this time. If Baghdad turns into a bloodbath because of an attempt to exert authority there, well can you say "Tet"? All the Koolaid in the world ain't going to help that.

When he's successful, we all get screwed. So, I guess you're right on that one.

That is what Stalin said about our efforts to restore order in post-WWII Germany.

"Were-wolf" brigades of Nazi loyalists were killing German "collaborators" who worked with American officials for years. Thousands died.

Iraq will be just fine.

I remember vivdly the Soviet communist sympathizers that demanded unilateral disarmament in the US. They came to my high school and told us how much better off the Soviet Union was. How they donated sleeping bags to the homeless in NYC.

Reagan was a "corporate shill with no leadership ability". He was an idiot. A clown.

I have heard it all before, thanks.
