Democratically elected prime minister of Iraq hates freedom

Why else would he spread anti-war propaganda like these?

Human rights abuses in Iraq are now as bad as they were under Saddam Hussein and are even in danger of eclipsing his record, according to the country's first Prime Minister after the fall of Saddam's regime.

'People are doing the same as [in] Saddam's time and worse,' Ayad Allawi told The Observer. 'It is an appropriate comparison. People are remembering the days of Saddam. These were the precise reasons that we fought Saddam and now we are seeing the same things.'


Seriously, why did we start this fucking war? At this point, it seems it was either (a) stop Saddam from developing WMDs he wasn't developing, or (b) replace a repressive thugocracy with a repressive thugocracy.

More and more I'm coming to believe that our president may actually be insane. Press reports indicate that he's upbeat about the war in Iraq, supremely confident that the judgment of history will vindicate him in the end. He simply isn't concerned about temporary setbacks, and he sees absolutely no reason to alter or adjust his policy.

He's the leader of the free world, the head of the most powerful nation in the world, and I really do think he's insane.
