The single most influential man in Iraq today, the Shiite religious leader Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, provides cash, free housing and medical care to tens of thousands of religious students and operates hundreds of religious Web sites across the globe.Hum....
Yet this is all going on not in Iraq, but here in the religious capital of Iran.
As the Bush administration seeks simultaneously to stabilize Iraq, in part by empowering its Shiite majority, and contain Iran, it must carefully navigate the complex relationship between the countries. It is not just Iran's influence in Iraq that the United States must confront, but Iraq's connection to Iran, as well.

I guess we should be supporting a Bombing To Help The Up Turn In The Dow Strategy....
Or was that, Bombing To Protect The Most Holy Islamic Republic Of Iraq from the Modern SeXular Humanists Iranian Flying Saucers. You know, it is not always easy to remember which were, and still are, the currently "we are the good forces" assertions about which are the "Goal Like Related Activities Programs" that make up ThatIraqiThingusOfPooh.
Especially when we all know that the singularly most important thing on the President's Agenda is
STOPPING GAY MARRIAGES.So remind me again how today's report of yesterdays bombing is taking america closer to a Gay Free World where HetBoys are no longer threatened by the Prospects of Gay Marriages???
Or were we suppose to be bombing the Gay Enclaves, and Missed... Gosh, just like the Hunt for Osama Bin Laden, whom everyone knows was not at all involved when those Iranian Flying Saucers attacked on 09/11/2001....
So which is our Glorious Moment Of What Again?
