1 How "sovereign" is Iyad Allawi if the White House acts as his personal PR firm? -----Original Message----- From: Pamela Stevens Sent: To: Subject: FW: Iyad Allawi for tomorrow Any interest in having Iyad Allawi on tomorrow -- as you know, he is the new interim prime minister of Iraq. Pamela Stevens Assistant Press Secretary The White House 202 456 6311 -----End Original Message----- Seriously, does the White House run the press operations of other countries? Any other country? It might be a small thing, but it's just another bit of evidence that Iraq's "sovereignty" is nothing of the sort.

2 I heard a similar arguement by a former egotistical Ambassador. It's nice to see that the kool-aid drinkers all drink the same flavor. How can Iraq really be sovereign if the United States is there? Oh my God, how can the Iraqi government compromise itself by accepting help from America, the strongest country in the world? The sky is falling, the sky is falling. Iraq isn't sovereign so lets just hand it over to Islamists who would kill kool-aid drinkers and non-drinkers alike. I have an answer to the absurd question that Iraq isn't sovereign. Do I say, Japan? Germany? South Korea? Europe? After all these years we remain in Japan, Germany, South Korean and parts of Europe and does that mock their sovereignty? Does that minimize their governments? Cut Iraq some slack here. We need to help. What happened to that liberal cry for helping the oppressed? Where are your empathies, your conscience? To challenge this one small detail is akin to saying Zarquawi you are right, take over, kill the infidels. But you know what his answer will be? I'll be visiting you back in America. If you don't think this a possibility then you should cut back on your kool-aid. I once was a liberal and freed myself just by simply listening closely and paying attention. It's amazing what you can learn when you can open your mind to think for yourself. Funny, I didn't vote for President Bush. I never voted Republican. Times have changed.
