IRAQ: PARLIAMENT TO TAKE A 2 MONTH VACATION

2nd of 2 parts.

CONTINUED FROM THIS ARTICLE

While I strongly propose the wholehearted involvement of the Americans in the restoration of Iraq, I have harsh words for the politicians who angrily respond to criticisms of their vacation plans.

The reasoning that Iraq is extremely hot during August is unacceptable even by a bit. Indeed. it is hot over there. A blogger (I forgot his Url), wrote that one American soldier lost as much as 6 pounds (in a day) due to exposure in the hot Iraqi summer weather. However, the same blogger added that the Iraqi parliament building is air conditioned and the Congress is never exposed to that kind of situation

The country is filled with sectarian and criminal violence added to the Al Qaeda problem and the rebellion of those who oppose the UN's presence. The death toll dramatically rises by the day, the Iraqi police and armed forces is close to non existent and the government is clearly lacking in leadership. And yet, there they have a parliament who has the gall to take a vacation and angrily denounces foreign complaint. Oh yeah!!!!

The killing goes on and they are clearly not in control. Just a few weeks ago, they even requested the United Nations to extend the stay of the US led Multinational Force because the government is not yet ready. Yet there they are, busily preparing for a vacation.

I can't believe this!

Let's all sing....
"Aruba, Jamaica,
oh I wanna take you to Bermuda, Bahama
Common pretty Mama..
Key Largo, Montigo
Baby, I wanna take you to the Kokomo
We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
That's where we want to go... Way down in Kokomo!"

Digg!
