Here again is yet another example of how democracy blooms in Iraq like the flowers thrown at the feet our liberating forces.

While on brief holiday from the office (took the day off, cough cough, wink), I ran across this little gem.

Convicted terrorist -- for his role in the 1983 US embassy bombings -- is now an Iraqi parlimentarian:

A man sentenced to death in Kuwait for the 1983 bombings of the U.S. and French embassies now sits in Iraq's parliament as a member of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's ruling coalition, according to U.S. military intelligence.

Jamal Jafaar Mohammed's seat in parliament gives him immunity from prosecution. Washington says he supports Shiite insurgents and acts as an Iranian agent in Iraq.

Jamal Jafaar Mohammed was convicted in absentia & sentenced to death for his role as a member of the "Al Da'wa 17" in the December 1983 bombings of embassies in Kuwait.

(I've heard of state-sponsored terrorism before, but this is ridiculous.)

Can't we all just get a long gun?

I found this website and it

I found this website and it really sadden me. The many faces, the many lives thrown in an upheaval because of the loss of the soldiers who were once the life in these faces. When is it going to end? and how did we reach this point as a nation to allow it to happen?

No illicit blow-jobs on Bush's watch, goddamnit.
