Iraqi Minister criticizes US for self-serving agenda of oil/war on terror
Stop your meddling, Iraqi minister tells US

http://smh.com.au/news/world/stop-your-meddling-iraqi-m...

AMID rising American frustration with the political deadlock in Iraq, the National Security Minister, Abdul Karim al-Enzy, has rebuked Washington for interfering in Iraq's domestic affairs.

In a remarkable broadside against the US, Mr Enzy charged that it was deliberately slowing Iraq's redevelopment because of a self-serving agenda that included oil and the "war on terror".

The attack came as the US Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, told a Senate inquiry in Washington that Iraq's political leaders needed "to recognise the seriousness of the situation and form a government of national unity that will govern from the centre, and to do it in a reasonably prompt manner".

In particular (the US) is urging the dismissal of the hardline Interior Minister, Bayan Jabr.

But in an interview with the Herald, Mr Enzy snapped: "The last time I checked, Bayan Jabr was Interior Minister of Iraq - not of the US or the UN. He is one of our best and this is interference in our business."

1. For what I can see, Bush and co horts are walking a tightrope...
between a self serving oil grab and and establishing a strong central government, which would tell Bush to get the hell outta Dodge.

3. The situation will become worse, not only in Iraq, but in the Middle ...
East. It's hard to make me angry, but it's reaching a boiling point.

Bush nows runs around and maintains the refusal to accept the Dubai contractor was based on anti-Arab sentiment.

Hey clown, you started this BS about every Arab being a potential danger when it suited your needs and now you can't accept responsibility for not considering port security.

The man is a raving lunatic, which would be okay if he were in a padded cell at Camarillo State Hospital, but not as President of the United States.

The man will lie and twist the truth for his own personal gains. Don't believe anything about religious ideology.

He is crazy for money and power, no matter how.
