U.S. / Iraq relations falling apart?

George Bush has been regularly poking the Iraqi government with a knife.

Well now he’s stuck it in their back and is giving it a good twist.

He’s said the hanging of Saddam Hussein “looked like a revenge killing” and the Iraqi government still had “some maturation to do”. It’s as if he’s deliberately making Iraq look weak.

You almost wonder if he has two separate objectives:

  1. Bring peace to Iraq
  2. Get a friendlier government in

He doesn’t seem to realise that pursuing (2) makes (1) far less likely.
