Strange Brouhaha

Friday, March 24, 2006 made your bed, man.

In 2001/2002, if you'll recall, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan. The Taliban--until that time the Bush family's partners in Middle East oil--had provided training camps for Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden (remember him?) and the 9/11 hijackers. We replaced that government with one more friendly to our interests. Its legal system is based on Sharia, Muslim law.

One of the tenets of Sharia? Convert from Islam and die.

Foresight is not this Administration's strong suit, I realize, but in considering the problems that the Little Emperor now has with the first government he installed in the Middle East, perhaps the Administration will take a second look at the theocracy it's installing in Iraq.
