…even when it’s one of the sworn enemies of Western civilization. In this case, it is Abdul Aziz Hakim, head of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq. Catchy title, no? Don’t think this guy is much of a liberal, in the classic Enlightenment sense of freedom of conscience and all the other freedoms that flow from it.
Nevertheless, this moke is getting impatient with our oh so slow pacification of his beloved cesspool, Iraq. From today’s WaPo, here’s the gist of it:
The leader of Iraq’s most powerful political party has called on the United States to let Iraqi fighters take a more aggressive role against insurgents, saying his country will only be able to defeat the insurgency when the United States lets Iraqis get tough.
Of course, since this spawn of Satan isn’t a neocon (he probably hates Jews only a little less than Cindy Sheehan does) nor a card-holding member of the Republican Party, he must be ok.
That last was sarcasm, just in case there are any members of the ACLU who stumble on this blog. The point? Shiites are primitives, tribal in nature, without the morality that Christians and Jews (and Hindus and Buddhists, for that matter) take for granted. In the Muslim world, those who stray from the bounds of acceptable theology (acceptable to the beholder, that is) are subhuman. Hence, any, and all, measures, however heinous, are justified.
The statements coming from this Shiite are more than sufficient for me: let’s get out and let them all kill each other. We should not sully what’s left of our good name, not to mention our good nature, trying to save these people who are mired in a 7th century religion of the sword.
