Get Real Condi, You're No Lincoln

Rice says “You know, I do foreign policy

So how is that going, Condi?

Let’s see now.

You invade a country based on fabrications.

It quickly becomes apparent to the citizens of said country what you are really there for.

Fairly obvious by what was secured immediately.

You make promises but you do not deliver.

You kick down their doors and drag their family members off by the thousands to hellish prison camps.

You slaughter entire cities using white phosphorous, depleted uranium and cluster bombs.

Then you set up elections for them and try to coerce them into electing those you want in power.

Three tormented years later they tire of having their lives turned upside down and they resist in earnest.

Their civil society in ruins and their occupiers clearly intent on staying in their country, they turn on each other.

Rice likens the civil war in Iraq to that of the US bloodbath between the north and south.

She equates the Iraqi people with the slaves of the old south. Ok, I can see the similarity there. They sure as hell aren't free. I do have to question, after all the failures of the US in Iraq, just which side she is on in that civil war analogy, the North or the South? Is emancipation of Iraq really the goal? The Iraqis don't seem to think so....at least not anymore.

Condi uses Civil War to slap Iraq critics

Secretary of State Rice compared the Iraq war with the American Civil War, telling a magazine that slavery might have lasted longer in this country if the North had decided to end the fight early.

"I'm sure there are people who thought it was a mistake to fight the Civil War to its end and to insist that the emancipation of slaves would hold," Rice said in the new issue of Essence magazine.
