Iraqi interim government declares martial law
. “Iraq's interim government on Sunday declared a state of emergency for 60 days, the spokesman for interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi announced. He said the state of emergency, equivalent to martial law, would apply to all of Iraq except the Kurdish north.”
: “Now that the election is over, the administration must face up to realities in Iraq. The key question is whether the American presence there is still part of the solution or part of the problem. While it's generally agreed that there must be an attempt to hold elections in Iraq early next year, what will come after that? Does the president need to greatly escalate the effort, even attack Syria and Iran, or will it be a time to find a way out? A continuing debacle in Iraq could wreck Bush's second term. That's reality.”
: “The Iraq occupation is one of the worst American blunders ever, as countless experienced diplomats and former intelligence officials keep pointing out. There is no political support in either party to put in the number of troops necessary to secure the place. We can't even seal Iraq's borders, let alone hunt down insurgents. Our very presence is a recruiting poster for every kind of anti-American militant.”

To the Delusional authors of emails on your website:
I accidentally was directed to your website and found it to be totally inept and void of any real grasp of the situation in Iraq. No where in your website do you refer to the 9-11 attack and the unfortunate souls that lost their lives due to the religious nuts that hijacked the planes and crashed them into innocent people. You are most certainly DELUSIONAL!
You must have your head in the sand to believe that there is no ties to Saddam and the fanatical terrorist that drive cars up to their own people and blow themselves up. You have to have been living in a cave for the past four years to NOT know that these Middle East radicals would have struck again. We as a country must protect our people and you cannot retreat in the face of an aggressor such as these religious nuts.
It would have only been a matter of time (a short time) before Saddam or any number of terrorist groups funded by a rich dictator would have gotten their hands on WMD and used them against us. Do you remember the KURDS? Men, women and children poisoned by chemicals…! DO you think that could not have happened to us here on our soil? You are most certainly DELUSIONAL to think not.
Do you remember Saddam’s two sons? What a pair of fucking pieces of shit, much like their father! Are you ashamed that we went in and blew them away? I’m not. What about the countless women raped and killed by these two losers?
The people in Iraq will someday soon rise up and be liberated. It is not today. There are too many insurgents lurking around waiting to blow up anyone and themselves in the name of some ridiculous religion. Look at this part of the world, for example Afghanistan. Here you have Bin Laden running the country, women could not show their face, could not go to school. The country was a tyranny. What happened 9-11 was the result of these factions being able to organize? If given time, Saddam would have developed ways to kill us and other that supported us! Don’t wine about our solders dying! They are brave men, twice the man you are. They fight for a reason and a just cause…
A proud American. And you're clearly proud to be a dickhead, too.
