Let’s see if we’ve got this straight.
After the election, which we’re going to win, by the way:
We will not be racist.
We will not be sexist.
We will not be anti-war.
We will not be . . . .
Well you get the pattern.
This is all only about getting past the election, which we are going to win, by the way.
We are going to knit this country back together.
Then we’ll just all hang out together and be nice.
And after the election, the world will get back to normal.
The bad guys will go back into their caves.
And all will be well again.
“The only way Iraq is going to work is if we concede that it is not likely to work the way we wanted it to.”
So say Sen. Joseph Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Leslie Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations.
They advocate breaking Iraq into a federation consisting of three parts: a Kurdish north, a Sunni center and a Shiite south.

Baghdad, Aug 23, (VOI)- A member of the security and defense committee of the Iraqi parliament expressed on Thursday the expectation that thousands of prisoners would soon be set free in accordance with the recommendations made by a joint parliamentary security committee.
MP from the Iraqi Accordance Front (IAF) Abdul Karim al-Samaraei told the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI) “there is a committee, which includes members of parliament, Iraqi and U.S. forces, that has presented legal mechanisms to the government to free prisoners from Iraqi and U.S. jails.”
“Once these mechanisms come into force, thousands of captives will be released throughout Iraq,” the man, who is also the spokesman for the Iraqi Islamic party, said.
“The security and defense committee paid several visits to the interior ministry’s jails, including al-Adala jail in al-Kadhimiya region in northern Baghdad, al-Tasfeerat prison in central Baghdad and other jails in the capital, to be updated om the conditions of prisoners there,” he noted.
“The visits unveiled the deteriorating humanitarian conditions in the jails, where prisoners’ human rights are being violated,” the lawmaker asserted.
Are you ready for Sharia Law?
It’s coming, some say, perhaps before the next tsunami.
Maybe even before Global Warming.
It might be worth looking into. It could change your life.
If it really does come.
