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:
- Bring peace to Iraq
- Get a friendlier government in
He doesn’t seem to realise that pursuing (2) makes (1) far less likely.
