They call a bunch of Iraqis together in Baghdad alledgedly to discuss what they want for their country, and instead they really discuss what they want for their country:
A conference of more than 1,100 Iraqis chosen to take the country a crucial step further toward constitutional democracy convened in Baghdad on Sunday under siege-like conditions, only to be thrown into disorder by delegates staging angry protests against the American-led military operation in the Shiite holy city of Najaf.
As I was saying last week, I don't think even the Bushies are stupid enough to think that blasting their way through ancient Muslim cemeteries in order to storm the holiest of holies of Shiite Islam could possibly advance their stated goals of bringing stablility and democracy to Iraq. They WANT things out of control, quite possibly intending to draw Iran into the war so they have an excuse to bomb the crap out of that country. I mean, its not as if Barbara and Jenna were on the front lines.
