Quick Quiz: What’s the Most Important Issue Facing Iraq?

With suicide car bombs going off every day, and internecine warfare between feuding Muslims escalating, you’d think the most important issue facing Iraq’s Maliki government would be law enforcement or getting the Iraqi Army in shape. Or even just keeping electricity and utilities working beyond a few hours a day.
But you would be wrong.
Instead, as Jerusalem Post investigative reporter Micheal Freund writes, the most important issue–the one the Iraqi government is putting great energy into–is the Arab Boycott of Israel.

Iraqi Leader Noori Al-Maliki Sets Priorities Straight

So glad they’ve have their priorities straight. And, FYI, the boycott is being enforced against U.S. companies–companies YOU–the American Taxpayer–is financing to HELP this backassward country get back on its feet. This is what our soldiers are dying for?! Yet again, no good deed goes unpunished. (And, as , it’s illegal for U.S. companies to abide by the Arab boycott of Israel.)
Read Michael’s entire report on this absurdity. And read his blog, too.
**** UPDATE: Cox & Forkum has a nice cartoon to go along with this.

What else can you expect from a bunch of cave-dwelling Neanderthals who subscribe to a religion that instructs them to act this way?
The whole situation is hopeless. Bush got snookered into cutting a deal with the anti-American murderer, al-Sadr, who proceeded to install his puppet in the Iraqi government.
You can write off Iraq just like much of Africa.

Let the Kurds have their own country (they deserve one far more then the Palis) and let the shiites and sunnis kill each other. The more they kill each other the less time they have to kill Jews and Christians.

Hugh at JihadWatch has always said that we should allow the Islamic civil war to proceed, that this was to our advantage. I am beginning to agree.
In the WSJ a couple of days ago, they had a map (provided by the UN) showing FDI in different ME countries. Guess what: there was just a blank where Israel is supposed to be, almost as if the country had fallen into the sea and that Jordan was a coastal country. Shame on the WSJ, which is becoming more like the NYT and all the other rags every day.

I’m African-American but I certainly agree with you about much Africa. Democracy only works in a logical
rational society. With freedom comes compromise and the majority of the world fails to grasp that. Those who are unwilling to compromise will never be free or have democracy. The biggest reason why Africa has so many problems is CORRUPTION. On top of that Islam is taking a hold of much of Africa which makes the situation 100 times worse. Corruption + Lack of Education/Logic = disaster. This holds true for the majority of the third world. I think the majority of Iraqi are happy living the way they life because they’ve learned to accept their situation which why when our troops finally come home, Iraq will revert to the same tyrannical dictatorship it once was. Its kinda like some of these “Rappers” and NBA/NFL players who become successful and earn lots of money but still get arrested for engaging in criminal activity and hanging out in the same slums they grew up in. I’ll do THEE_BRUNO one better and write of much of Africa and all of the Middle East. America needs to come first. What we are trying to do with the world is like a cocaine user trying to help a heroine addict get off drugs.

Bush will go down in history as the best intentioned but most incompetent President ever (well, after Carter). He could not just let the Generals run Iraq for a while. He had to discard Malaki and appoint State Department idiots to “administer” the place. Germany and Japan where not administered by the State Department because the president knew that they were incable of doing the job.
This is what you get when you elect a pretend conservative to the White House.
Review Bush’s appointments. Condy is more of an appeasing leftist than Powell. The current Secretary of Defense is to the left of Condy. Negraponte is a lib from the State Department (thak G-d he returned to his roots). All in Home Land are retarded. Gonzales is a left of center clown. We are doomed!!!

LOL! As you said, these Turd-Worlders are so dysfunctional, irrational, and uneducated that their situation is hopeless.

The WSJ map to which I refered is in the Wednesday, March 14 print edition, page A8.
I think it’s subscription, but here’s the link:
Notice the Muslim countries are shaded in brown, and the other countries are given a slightly lighter shade. Israel is the color of the oceans, ie not there.

It’s the truth. I mean I wish we could help save the whole the world. I wish we could clothe the need,feed the poor,shelter the homeless but its impossible task if the people we are trying to help are uneducated and have no sense of logic. Its like that saying goes “If you teach a man to fish, he can eat for a lifetime” but here’s the sad truth. Teaching somebody who is uneducated and illiterate is like teaching a person to drive a car who has no concept of lanes,road,stop signs,traffic lights,car lengths, or when to stop. You see its impossible…its a failed task before it even starts. What this has to do with Iraq is that Iraqi’s and the majority of the Middle East/Muslim World have no concept of “liberty” or “democracy”. So if you have ask the question…how can a nation sustain something they have no concept of??? Again its like leaving a person who has no concept of driving a vehicle in the driver seat on a busy road. Its a failed task from the get-go. In Islamic society especially, the emphasis on education is strictly adherent to Qu’ran. Islamic society discourages the reading of un-Islamic books,notion of un-Islamic concepts or philosophies and usually outlaws most things deemed to be “Western”. Ok so lets put that into perspective.We are trying to help a nation who is in other words “incompetent” and ignorant of “logic” establish and sustain a “democracy” which is the total opposite of their lifestyle and beliefs. You know see why the war in Iraq and Afghanistan are hopeless. You know see why the Somali war was hopeless and why we lost in Vietnam. I’m forever proud and grateful of the sacrifice and bravery all the veterans past and present exhibited along with our current troops.But on the flip side Vietnam,
Iraq,Afghanistan,Somalia were all impossible tasks and our leaders past and present are to blame for that.Here’s something to think about though…if the Bush Administration was this incompetent can anyone imagine how America will be if the Democrat/Liberals win the election???

Iraq has had 5,000 years to become civilized. How many thousand more will it take?
(1) Bring the troops home, tomorrow.
(2) Put 50,000 of them on the border.
(3) Put 50,000 of them in our classrooms, to guarantee the safety of teachers and that all homework is done on time.
(4) Send Bush back to school to learn history.
(5) Elect a real leader in ’08.
(6) Send the ACLU to Iraq, day after tomorrow.
(7) Appoint a border czar. I nominate Debbie S.

Damn I cant argue with that. Short,sweet and the Truth. 5000 years is a hella long time.

the_don on March 20, 2007 at 1:36 pm

The sad truth is that we overestimated the Iraq will to be free and the intelligence of the Iraqi people. These people are stuck in the 13th century, with no ambition or courage to break out of it. They would rather fight for revenge than fight for their own freedom.
The Iraqi people are not intelligent enough to realize the great opportunity they have been given and foolishly squandered.
Perhaps they are unable to live under anything than a steel-fisted dictator who will tell them what to do, how to do it and when to do it.
Sadly, this is becoming more and more evident, as the Iraqis show their true lack of courage and will.

Boyycotting AMERIKKLAN companies is understandable…but what the hell does Israel have to do with the price of porkchops in Baghdad???

EminemsRevenge on March 20, 2007 at 2:26 pm

Great plan Happiness Pursuer!
8) Prosecute CAIR as a criminal organization.
9) Shut down all foreign financed mosques in the West.
10) Occupy and administer major oil producing regions in the ME for the benefit of all mankind.

Mordecai on March 20, 2007 at 2:38 pm

DDB put it all neatly in a nutshell.

When all is said and done, the Iraqi Muslims will stab us in the back just like the Bosnian Muslims are doing now. We helped save Muslim lives in Bosnia, Somalia and Kuwait and the thanks we got was 9/11 and an endless parade of ingrate Muslim immigrants who kill Americans in Malls and run them down with their taxi cabs.

FreethinkerNY on March 20, 2007 at 2:46 pm

What the hell does the verbal excrement spewing from “Enema’sRevenge” have to do with logic?
I think he needs to go live in Iraq and shovel camel dung with the rest of them. It’s amusing how all these spiteful, hateful LIBS can hammer this great nation all day long yet, if given the opportunity to live elsewhere, they’d be kicking and screaming on their way out.

Thats because all Lefties and Liberals are traitors. I think we need to board all of these people onto a plane and drop them up in the middle of Palestine or Fallujah.
