al-Mal-icky

From Philadephia Daily News:

BAGHDAD – Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki yesterday lashed out at U.S. and French politicians who have called on him to step down and accused U.S. forces of committing “big mistakes” in killing and detaining civilians in the hunt for insurgents.

It was the second outburst from the embattled leader in recent days as he has come under fire from an array of allies and adversaries who accuse him of failing to unite his cabinet and put key laws and programs in place.

He drew fresh criticism yesterday from two influential congressional Republicans.

Maliki trained his angriest words on a Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Hillary Rodman Clinton of New York, and Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.).

Road2DC: A Dozen Reasons to March on Washington

A recent diary asked:
Why Should you Go to DC on 9/15?
The diarist (pssst, it was really jlynne, but I didn’t tell you!!) stated her reasons:

I am going to DC to protest the War in Iraq because I am convinced that if we do not purposely, consciously and willfully end the War, we will lose, not only the War, but the grail as well. We will lose the very thing that defines us as a Nation capable of waging war in the first instance.

Rigged elections, torture and rendition, warrantless spying, the Unitary Executive, suspension of habeas corpus, signing statements, the SPP, the Iraqi Oil Law, lost arms shipments, increased heroin production, war profiteering, the national debt, the invasion and utter destruction of a sovereign nation, the deaths of over half a million civilians and 3,723 American soldiers, the shredding of the U.S. Constitution . . . . four million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes – nearly 20% of the total population of Iraq. Twenty percent.

Well, yeah, there’s that.

Oh, Chimpy, now you’ve gone and pissed off Max…..

Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) — Former Democratic U.S. Senator Max Cleland, a disabled Vietnam veteran, said President George W. Bush made a faulty analogy when he cited that war to bolster his case for continuing U.S. military operations in Iraq.

A Hard Habit to Break

From ABC News:

In dozens of letters spanning 66 years, Mother Teresa described the “emptiness” she felt and confessed her struggles with faith and the existence of heaven in pages she had planned to have destroyed.

…snip…

To millions her work still shines as the example of Christlike devotion. It brought her the Nobel Peace Prize and beatification by Pope John Paul. But once she began her work in India she never heard God’s voice again. Nine years after she founded her mission in Calcutta she wrote, “What do I labour for? If there be no God — there can be no soul — if there is no Soul then Jesus — You also are not true.”
