Reader comment on item: Islamic Law Rules In Iraq

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), Mar 3, 2004 at 17:38

The Islamists effectively used the tactic "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" to deceive the west into deposing Saddam. Now they placate the west by pretending to be moderate to open the door to "self rule". We will buy it hook, line, and sinker. This sets the stage for the next move. If the coalition is out before the election, Bush is a hero until the AK-47s come out and the Shia-Sunni-Kurd Bloodbaths start. Then it is all his fault. If the coalition is still there in November, it's all Bush's fault and Kerry is elected. Kerry then gets the coalition out, then the bloodbath starts and they blame it all on Bush. The doctrine of deception practiced by the Islamists worked to get rid of the Russians with our help of course; It worked to get rid of the Taliban and Saddam, and it will be effective in creating an Islamic theocracy in Iraq. The World is blind to this threat to Human Freedom and Equality.
