Are you saying that just because they're both in the government that this is evidence that Maliki is behind the death squads?
And you're tellling ME to get real?
Evidence means exactly what it says. Guilt by association is not evidence. It is, in fact, indicative of shallow thinking and paranoia.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.01.2007 @ 16:31
You put an article by that nutcase Amr on this website?
There is not one shred of evidence that Maliki is tied in with Jabr, the former Interior Minister, and the death squads.
Not One. Amr doesn't have any. No one has any because Jabr was a Badr Brigade member and left Interior before Maliki took office.
If I want al-Jazeera propaganda or Noam Chomsky idiocy on this site, I'll ask for it.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.01.2007 @ 14:19
Good points. I've been writing for a long time about the SCIRI wanting to carve out an independent Shia state in the south and how the writ of Iraqi law does not run in places like Basra.
There have also been clashes with the Mahdi army and the Badr organizations down there. Only once or twice has it really gotten out of hand but once we leave, that's where the real violence will be; Shia on Shia.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.01.2007 @ 12:03
It's in the bar above the feed for your blog. I have my own blog as one of my feeds for that reason. Just click on the feed and it's the number immediately above your blog name.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.01.2007 @ 22:07
Bad language is subjective, of course, but since I do take the lords name in vain on the blog, I have defined it as what might loosely be termed "The 7 words you can't say on TV."Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.01.2007 @ 19:34
Of course it's ridiculous to talk about the War Production board and rationing.
I said so in the next sentence - if you bothered to read it.
My point was that if Bush wants the support of the American people, he has to give them a stake in the outcome. Platitudes and gimmicks won't cut it. His rhetoric has failed to match his actions.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.01.2007 @ 18:02

My understanding is that Olmert can stay in office as long as he's not in jail or gets a no confidence vote.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.01.2007 @ 16:02
What in God's name is your problem? Are you retarded?
You flit from post to post leaving inane, stupid comments that any 6 year old could leave - not to mention the fact that your stupidity is really getting on my nerves.
Why not respond to the post directly. Why always the "gotchya?" Why can't you be civil? Why are you such a brainless twit?
You have been warned. You are not contributing one iota to discussion on this blog.

Your comment was deleted for being so far off topic that it ended up in the next county.
I get mad at you sometimes but you're always honest and have a point to make. And I agree that trying to staunch the flow of blood between Sunnis and Shias is a waste of time. Even going after the insurgents should be done in tandem with political moves from the Iraqi government.
Kill the al-Qaeda terrorists in Iraq - that's the ticket. And while there appears to be a limited amount of cooperation between them and the insurgents, it may be easier to ferret them out - especially in places like Anbar where we have the local tribes on our side in fighting against al-Qaeda.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.01.2007 @ 14:47
