He has been obstructing the Oil for Food/UN scandal. He also needs to account for the money we gave him. Where the fuck is an Arab Ghandi. Not one of these fucks has an iota of integrity.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

This sucks. I thought he was a decent guy. Just for the record an Iraqi judge signed the warrants and the investigation is being done by the Iraqis. Our boys were their for security reasons. I didn't realize the Jordanians wanted him for embezzlement of over $1,000,000,000!

Yep. Chalabi's not the greatest guy around :smirk:

The US is going to dump the Iraq war on him now, I think. Seems like the same thing (becoming a scapegoat) happens to all the "leaders" the US props up in the Mid East.

BS. We aren't going to dump anything on him. We have been pissed for a while that the weapons he swore were there have not turned up though. He was not the only source of intelligence though. There is no way any administration will be stupd enough to try to pin that on one guy. Hell they have already admitted to having faulty intelligence and underestimating the "insurgents". I got to give them credit for admitting when they are wrong. No war is going to go perfectly.

comedy

shakta: powell's interview was just the setup, this raid is merely
the opening act. nobody likes this guy or the fact that he's been
getting a nice fat check every month for what amounts to absoluetly
nothing. really, this guy is the perfect target, a self-serving pig
who lied to poor old geedub.

Ya know, this guy is the perfect poster boy for these swine. If he could have kept his head down and his fingers out of the til for even a little while he could have had a huge role in the incoming Iraqi government. But no, the douchebag couldn't delay his thievery even a little bit. The Iraqis desperately need to find just one leader with integrity who is not a religious figure. Hell, ALL of the Arabs need to find just one of their own. There's milions of them and ALL of their leaders suck. Could it be a cultural thing?????

A huge role in doing what Paul Bremer told him perhaps. The second the american troops pull out his head will be on a pole anyway.

If he had not been a corrupt swine, he could have been a leader. Or do you have to be a corrupt swine to lead these people? That is the burning question.



HST in "Better Than Sex"....something like "...once you get these people (Clintons) you'll be begging for Nixon"

If he had not been a corrupt swine

Bush wouldn't have picked him to be leader.

Why would it have to be a self respecting Iraqi?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
