Let's take a look at them, shall we?

http://www.answers.com/topic/united-iraqi-alliance

lists three parties:

The largest is called "The Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq". Here's a look at our new pals!

http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...para/sciri.htm

The second is called "Islamic Al-Da'wa Party". Let's take a look at them, the party led by Muqtar Al-Sadr, who hates our fucking guts, and tells his followers that we are in league with the Jews to take over Iraq:

The last, the party called "The Iraqi National Congress", led by Ahmed Chalibi, another real pal of the US, has withdrawn.

Now, tell me why American boys are dying for these two parties? And why did the lady with the purple finger vote for the parties that will make here a second class citizen?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Thanks for looking those up for me! I had neither the time nor the inclination to do so... I believe this is the reason she voted:

What a joke. What did she vote? An empty government. I swear the dust in KS must have affected your mind.

China and Saudi Arabia are supposedly among the few Countries still buying US bonds, and keeping the economy afloat.
