More Warning Signs From Iraq

June 21, 2007 at 8:59 am | Posted in American politics, condoleezza rice, conservatives, corruption, Iraq | 1 Comment

There are more warning signs from Iraq that Iraq is getting even worse. The first is the news that fourteen American soldiers were killed in the past 48 hours or so. That violence was among other bombs going off, including mortars on the Green Zone.

The second warning sign is Iraq’s Vice President has attempted to quit, and Shi’ite leaders are losing much confidence in Maliki and the Americans. This is very serious, because if the Shi’ites bolt from the government, well, what do you have left?

The third warning sign is US embassy workers lack any kind of Arabic language skills, forcing Condoleezza Rice to make the State Department fill positions in Iraq first. The reason this is a warning sign is because it just won’t happen. The United States will not be able to fill positions at their massive embassy in Baghdad with competent professionals who would have even the most basic understanding of Iraq and the Arab world. It really is tragic.

Heed these warnings, America. Iraq is an utter disaster and the longer we stay there, the worse it is going to get. These are not the fruits of good laborers.
