298. I believe...
Edited on Sun Aug-19-07 04:08 PM by autorank

I believe

that when four US Army Sergeants write the most sophisticated NYT OpEd ever on Iraq, the people of the United States are more than ready to know and understand how the forces of fraud and deception have manipulated elections and, as a result, US policy for quite some time. This analysis is a result of the stolen election of 2000 which allowed this illegal and tragic invasion.

The Iraqi government is run by the main coalition partners of the Shiite-dominated United Iraqi Alliance, with Kurds as minority members. The Shiite clerical establishment formed the alliance to make sure its people did not succumb to the same mistake as in 1920: rebelling against the occupying Western force (then the British) and losing what they believed was their inherent right to rule Iraq as the majority. The qualified and reluctant welcome we received from the Shiites since the invasion has to be seen in that historical context. They saw in us something useful for the moment.
