Is there some strategy here? I can't help but thinking this is very bad... maybe the polls are reflecting this? People supported the war that was supposed to bring freedom.. not the war that was going to install an Islamic dictatorship..
What was the point of liberating Iraq if we're just helping to install another Islamic theocracy?
So what the heck does this mean?
Sharia law by default?
Before you democrats chuckle, I wouldn't vote you in office on a bet.
I have come to the conclusion that Muslims are incapable of living in a democracy.
You left out the part where there are two sources that new laws must be checked out against... Islamic Law and Democratic principles/human rights.
Also, the Islamic principles the vague language they used leaves a lot of room for interpretation.
I've come to the conclusion that all of them have lead poisoning in some degree or another.
Inshallah, Allahu Akbar.
America as the midwife of a Sharia state.
Did people think the Iraqi legislators would dawn powdered wigs and draft on constitution based on Christian ideology like our founding Fathers did?
Really.....Some of the people in here are real pieces of work. Your not going to have a secular society with a deeply religious people. As for the Sadam comment, PU
Seriously. Why is anyone surprised? Iraqi democracy is not going to be like American democracy. The vast, vast majority of Iraqis are Muslim. Is it surprising that they want their new constitution to reflect their values?
They said Islam is "A" main source, not "THE" main source;
that leaves room for a lot of interpretation.
(At least, that's what I'm hoping. . .)
So that's what 1800 soldiers died for. F&$# 'em. Let's get out of that country and kick the Islamofascists out of ours.
>>ban laws that contradict religious teachings,
So much for ladies bare limbs, or barbers who shave beards, video stores showcasing hollywood/bollywood, or liquor stores.
The days of having a beer and fried fish on the banks of the Tigris, with a woman companion dressed in a western outfit in the most secular, technocratic society of the Muddled East are over.
Too bad we've abandoned the secularists and modernists.
Well its no longer a question bring the boys home...No sense being there if their not protecting freedom, because they are officially not now.
the war is officially a failure.
I am hopeful too. It seems like an important compromise was reached. The important word above is "widely." Also, it gives human rights and values of democracy equal footing. Remember, women make up 60% of Iraq. I doubt they would want to have Sharia law imposed. I think Reuters wants to put the worse spin on it. I believe Iraq will turn out much better than the leftist MSM will ever admit.
Iran Junior. Wonderful.
Well, then, just fookem! We should have just given them a great big glass parking lot. I have no more compassion left, for anyone's kids, but mine.
They claim to be an ancient civilization, but, they ain't progressed a decade beyond their starting point, could be that it is the best they can do. Don't show me any more pictures of pitiful,little,abused, and neglected babies,my emotions are focused on my own.
All this and what do we get? The beginnings of a theocracy. Don't worry, I'm sure Bush will try to spin this over the next week. Isn't the plan over the next 5 days to presents even better excuses for the police action?
