Isolated In Iraq
QUOTE, Donald Rumsfeld:
"It's important that the new government be attentive to the competence of the people in the ministries, and that they avoid unnecessary turbulence," he said on his ninth visit to Iraq since the invasion. END QUOTE.
QUOTE: More understandably Mr Rumsfeld warned against delays in the political process - it is two months since the election results were announced - and said parliament should seek to draw a constitution by 15 August. END QUOTE.
Do you see something wrong with this? They should have drawn their constitution first, then held elections. That way, everybody would know how much and what kind of power they are supposed to have. It's just democracy for show, and a democracy that will keep liberty far, far away from the Iraqi people. Turbulence, Rumsfeld? When things are this disorganized turbulence is the appropriate result.
