Nouri al-Maliki offers Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi a last chance.
(BAGHDAD) Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki cautioned yesterday that the United States could face civil war if disunity continues among differing factions in the United States Congress. "If we can trust CNN and the Arabic edition of The New York Times, it's only a matter of time before a civil war breaks out between the red states and the blue states," Maliki said to a hushed audience of Iraqi veterans and their families, suggesting that the fanatical leaders of Congress "be ousted as swiftly as a convicted thief's left hand is separated from his arm in Saudi Arabia."
Maliki: "Effective legislation requires diplomacy. The Legislative Branch can't just keep issuing nonsensical subpoenas to Executive Branch as if there were no separation of powers, and then blow a gasket in front of the media in order to manipulate the American people."
The first national convention of the Veterans of the Iraqi War of Independence was held in Baghdad's newest Holiday Inn. The V.I.W.I. is Iraq's newest organization of combat veterans.
"We here in Iraq know a show trial when we see one," Maliki said, referring specifically to the Senate's repeated attempts to take down Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez for the purpose of having the Democratically controlled Senate appoint a new attorney general so that impeachment proceedings against President Bush could begin. "Civil wars have started for lesser reasons," he added.
In what Maliki termed a polite and well-meaning push, he has put the US Congress to a timetable, saying that he expects resolution to several important domestic issues before the first Presidential primary in 2008.
"It is Harry Reid's and Nancy Pelosi's 'last chance'," Maliki stated, making quotation marks in the air with his fingers. "For if the divisive rhetoric doesn't stop, these extremists should voluntarily step down, or members of their party should oust them in the interest of unity."
Maliki urged Congress to come back immediately from its vacation to deal with many unresolved issues. "Permanent tax cuts are a must," he said, "but the issues of immigration and social security, as well as domestic oil extraction and building new refineries are also crucial in preventing the otherwise inevitable slip into anarchy."
Maliki apologized in advance for comments that might appear "discourteous," but added, "It's about time someone said them."
WASHINGTON (AP) - Florida Democrats would forfeit their votes in selecting a presidential nominee unless they delay their state election by at least a week, the national party said in a stern action Saturday meant to discourage others from leapfrogging ahead to earlier dates.
The Florida party has 30 days to submit an alternative to its planned Jan. 29 primary or lose its 210 delegates to the nominating convention in Denver next summer.
The state party chairwoman, Karen Thurman, said she would confer with state officials about the ultimatum. "It's going to be a difficult discussion," she said, because Floridians are wary of having their votes taken away.
If you read the whole article you will see how it is Bushitler and his brother that is behind this clever scheme to deny progressives the vote.

Comrade Hasan said;"Demoncats and Iraqi terrorists agree on one thing: imperialist America must be defeated."
They've been doing a pretty good job demonizing Amerikkka Comrade. They're still working on the defeated part.
