Only the Kurds Stand for Secular Democracy Now

Read this lovely quote on what Bush and his boots of freedom marching in Iraq think:

U.S. concessions to Islamists on the role of religion in Iraqi law marked a turn in talks on a constitution, negotiators said on Saturday as they raced to meet a 48-hour deadline under intense U.S. pressure to clinch a deal.

U.S. diplomats, who have insisted the constitution must enshrine ideals of equal rights and democracy, declined comment.

Well, that's the whitewashing done, then. We are going to build another theocracy, to grow more little terrorists with, and it has been worth all the human sacrifices. Don't you agree? If you don't, you are a treasonous anti-American terrorist.

The Kurds are still fighting back on the issue of Islam becoming the main source of legislation in the country. But they are unlikely to win.

Too sad for the women of Iraq who used to have very good legal protections before the invasion. I guess that's why we liberated them and all that.
