Bush caves on Iraq's Constitution

Isn't it funny that the Iraqis have a deadline to complete their constitution? Like it's a mid term paper and it counts for 50% of their grade. Bush wants it on his desk by Monday dammit! Well, it seems, to meet that deadline Bush will let them forgo Federalism and replace it with Theocracy. An unnamed Kurdish politician had this to say...

"We understand the Americans have sided with the Shi'ites," he said. "It's shocking. It doesn't fit American values. They have spent so much blood and money here, only to back the creation of an Islamist state ... I can't believe that's what the Americans really want or what the American people want."

Sunni Arab negotiator Saleh al-Mutlak says "We reject federalism," and Bush says, OK...ahh... a theocracy will be fine. The Sunnis are elated, the Kurds' jaws are dropped, and it's unclear what concessions the Shi'ites have made.

Nevertheless, a deal seems to have been struck which would mean parliament could pass no legislation that "contradicted Islamic principles." Lord have mercy.
