Think of this the next time Uncle Sam starts imploring for a war for human rights
In yesterday's Oregonian, Mike Francis writes of a national reservist in Baghdad who:
From his post several stories above ground level, he watched as men in plainclothes beat blind folded and bound prisoners in the enclosed grounds of the Iraqi Interior Ministry.The Iraqi government is "sovereign" when it is abusing Iraqis but not when it comes to economics.
The simple fact is that Iraq is a U.S. colony even though Bush and friends do not want to micromanage the country. They especially don't want to step in and protect Iraqis from abuse.
