James, you make some very good points, however we also have electricity, clean water, petrol and plenty of food in the US. We have to count our blessings. I wish everyone in Iraq could just come to my house.

James Charles

Iraq has gone from being a "cakewalk" to a souffle that exploded all over the oven.

I feel such pain for the majority of Iraqi citizens who simply want to get on with their lives and not have to worry about IEDs, being yanked from their car and being shot in broad daylight, of armed militias roaming the countryside and foreign troops everywhere.

I almost choke every time I head a Washington politico or pundit pin the blame on the mess in Iraq on the Iraqi's themselves. Right! As if they invited in the Americans and gave them free reign to sabotage their country, their institutions, their homes.

Hopefully, the next US president will re-join the International Criminal Court so Pres. Bush, Vice Pres. Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo, Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz and the others responsible for the bloodshed can be brought to trial on war crimes charges.

Be brave, friend. Except for the violence, the situation in the US is not much better.


If you would like a copy of the Iraqi Hydrocarbon Law write me at:


and I will send you a copy.

Although the Law briefly discusses distribution of oil money to various groups its mostly about assigning Iraq's oil wealth to foreign oil interests.



Too true. Bogus--and repeatedly changing--reasons for an invasion. Complete devastation of the country's infrastructure...and now pressure to sign oil rights over to 4 (count 'em folks, FOUR) oil companies for fifty years. FIFTY years. Meanwhile sanctimoniously observing that this is all about the Iraqis learning to share (their profits with each other).

If it's any consolation, dear Iraqis, Bush doesn't obey/respect the U.S. constitution, either. He and his band of brutes are above all laws.

I live for the day when he and others at the top of that dung heap are called to answer for their crimes against humanity at the Hague.
