Fomenting Unrest in Iraq


The SOFA, status of force agreement, between the US and Iraq is in jeopardy of not being ratified by the Iraqi government, which has repeatedly asked US forces to leave Iraq, and as a result violence in that country has intensified despite the success of the “surge”. So in order to get the Iraqis to see the necessity of keeping US forces on their soil, the neocons have set about destabilizing Iraq’s neighbors. This latest violation of international law also allows the neocons who want to destabilize all Arab states makes it difficult for whoever becomes President to even talk to the Arabs who along with the rest of the world are outraged over this latest attack on Syrian territory.

Palin has gone hog wild


It seems Sarah Palin is more than a maverick.  Here’s an interesting quote from a McCain insider from CNN,

“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone….She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.

“Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom.”

She doesn’t trust her family, well so much for family values and the first dude, and she sees herself as a major player in Republican party politics in the future?  This woman has a huge ego. I’m sure McCain is kicking his own butt over the decision to have her as a running mate.  Or perhaps Palin is not as subservient as Cindy McCain who can take being called a *cunt* in public and still stand by her man. Either way it appears Palin is not much liked by her partners associates and has decided to carve out her own niche in the Party, beyond Alaska.  The latter would be unfortunate for her to pursue, since coming down to the lower 48 Palin has more often than not appeared like a moose in the headlights than as someone enlightened.
