Meet the new boss

Okay, so now we know who is going to be running things in Iraq. Ibrahim Jaafari. He is considered a moderate within his own group. What is his group? These lunatics:

"Twenty-one years ago an Iraqi exile crashed a General Motors truck full of propane and the explosive hexogen through the gates of the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait and detonated his deadly load, killing five and injuring 37.

In the hour that followed, four other bombs exploded in Kuwait City, one at the French Embassy, wounding many more.

Those explosions were among a series of terrorist attacks carried out in the 1980s by the Iranian-based Dawa (Call), a radical Islamic group whose current leader, Ibrahim Jaafari, was designated yesterday to become prime minister of Iraq."

So we got rid of Hussein, and replaced him with a guy who represents the more moderate wing of a group of fundamentalist suicide bombers. Fundamentalist suicide bombers who are closely allied with those wonderful folks in Iran.

How great.

Maybe Bush's real agenda is simply the spread of fundamentalism, and he doesn't even care which religion it represents as long as it's appropriately intolerant.

Hey, it would explain a lot.
