18. This is exactly what they authorized in Afghanistan
The "No law in violation of the Sharia." part.

Bottom line, as you say, Theocracy. And while that is just maintaining the status quo in Afghanistan, it is a decided step (or twenty steps) backward for Iraq, which before the invasion was the only secular state in the entire middle east.

To have * crow about women's rights in the region every time he opens his mouth is just one more of the million or so hypocritical positions he takes. When the theocracy is installed, the women will have no rights, and whatever Democracy we've tried to kindle will flicker away.

Nice going, *.
