Awaiting Instructions? What? To blow themselves up? To present bullshit reporting?
What is the Iraqi leadership doing capturing journalists? Instructing journalists? What are they thinking? That this will play well? That folks the world over will look at them and say, "Hey. Those Iraqi leadership guys. They sure are the good guys...."
This stuff actually makes me feel sick. Come on. Let the journos go. Set them free to report. Show you have a shred of decency.
God. What a day. Ramadan comes out and says yes, it is a full on Iraqi military tactic to blow up their own troops on suicide missions. And Tariq Aziz comes out and says that it is not a military tactic at all, but a demonstration of the will of ordinary Iraqi citizens.
I tell you, my friends, if the Iraqi citizenry stoops to Palestinian violent imbecility in high numbers (for sure small numbers will do it - name a nation with not one idiot in it - you cannot) then that is that. Any citizenry that behaves that stupidly, selfishly, violently, foolishly, brutally can Get Far Away.
God, what a bunch of horrible news.
Who knew they would stoop so low? And do not start in with the 'It is just like Vietnam' rubbish, okay? The Vietnamese never called for other Asians to blow themselves up over their crisis. That, my friends, is a peculiar Arab concept - one on fire, all on fire - that seems to be the Arab motto.
God help us.
