Turkey and Giblets
The recent Turkish invasion of the Kurdish area of Iraq points up the disaster Bushit policies have wrought in the Middle East. Above all, the Middle East - - and Iraq in particular - - is a witches' brew of hostile ethnic and religious disparity: Shiite and Sunni, Arab and Kurd, Baathist and Islamist, and multiple variations of the above and more. Dumbya literally threw gasoline on these hot coals that have existed for centuries when he manufactured a cause for war and ordered the invasion of Iraq. The Bushits thought that they could conquer Iraq on the cheap, while Afghanistan - - and now nuclear Pakistan - - continues to disintegrate under al Qaeda and Taliban resurgence (remember them? The ones who actually attacked us?) The Kurds, Iraqis, and we are reaping the whirlwind of Dumbya's arrogance and incompetence, and will do so for years to come regardless of the 2008 election outcome.
