We Angry Bloggers
Why are we in America surprised when the rest of the world won't be as complacent and quasi-diplomatic as we angry bloggers are?
Joe Gandelman on The Moderate Voice writes:
Now, let me get this straight, this guy is on our side?
Yesterday, the speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, said “We know there was a corrupt regime in Saddam, but a regime should be removed by surgery, not by butchering. The U.S. occupation is butcher’s work under the slogan of democracy and human rights and justice.”
White House honcho Bolten assures us he is.
Today on Meet the Press, White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten said he has been in meetings with al-Mashhadani and the speaker has an “appreciation for the sacrifice so many Americans have made.”
Whew! What a relief. Now I know we're all operating on the same page.......
The Bush Adminstration's ruse of compliance is fading all around the world. We just have to be ready for the aftermath. Based on what's going on in Lebanon and Iraq, it won't be pretty.
