Dollars for mosques
It looks like Bush has discovered a new way to fight our Moslem enemy -- buy them off. So, we'll sell them our ports, and then to be even more generous, we'll rebuild the s shrine that the Moslems blew up the other day. Of course, we had nothing to do with the shrine's destruction, but that's OK, we'll rebuild it and thereby give the impression that perhaps we did blow it up. How's that for cleverness?
BREITBART.COM - Mosque Bombing an 'Evil Act,' Bush Says
President Bush said Thursday the bombing of a revered Shiite shrine in Iraq was "an evil act" intended to create strife. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned against characterizing the rising turmoil as a harbinger of civil war.
[...] He said the United States was serious in its commitment to help rebuild the Golden Mosque.
According to Iraq the Model, the [h]ead of the Sunni endowment sheikh Ahmed al-Samarra'I announces that he will allocate 2 billion dinars (~1.4 million $) for the rebuilding of the shrine from the treasury of the Sunni endowment. So if the money has already been pledged, why on earth does the Great White Father and Keeper of the Royal Purse, George Bush, horn in and pledge our own taxpayer money? He'll never learn that you can't buy the enemy off, that they hate us almost as their birthright, and that it's a battle in which only one side can emerge.
