Arab League Seeks Peace via Saddam

A convoy of Arab League officials was attacked by gunmen in Baghdad on Monday, killing three policemen but leaving officials mostly unscathed. The delegates are in Iraq to help oversee Saturday’s referendum on a new constitution and to plan an upcoming visit by its secretary general, Egyptian Amr Moussa.

Speaking to BBC, Moussa said he fears Iraq is on the brink of civil war. He said there is no leadership in the country and the League would work to bring different groups together. Moussa has not visited Iraq since the 2003 U.S. led invasion.

Instead of actively seeking to help Iraq, the ex-foreign minister of Egypt has spent his time playing golf since he was ousted from his ministry. Does anyone think that the Arab League can do any good for Iraq? “I’d prefer they leave us alone or even kick us out of their league of corruption and tyranny,” says blogger Iraq – the Model:
I don’t know whose idea was it to invite the league into Iraq but it was a very dumb idea... this league can do nothing good for Iraq... Iraq now isn’t qualified to be a member of the league (in the league’s standards of qualifications; that’s being pan-Arab fascists ruled by a mentally retarded sociopath) and I hope we don’t get qualified at all.

Can anyone tell me how are we supposed to believe that the ones who caused the trouble in the first place have the intention to help solve it now? I don’t think the league is the least sad about the bad things happening in Iraq, I can picture them laughing and celebrating each and every death in Iraq and they keep pouring more doom and gloom into the scene as that is what they really want to see.

He also drops a bomb: Amr Moussa is allegedly going to visit Saddam Hussein in jail. His ‘solution for Iraq’ is to appease the terrorists by bringing Saddam back to a position of power! Quote:
Iraqi MP Jawad Al-Maliki the 2nd man in Jafari’s Dawa party, said that news has leaked telling that Mousa put paying Saddam Hussein a visit in his jail on the schedule of his visit to Iraq.

Al-Mailiki added that this visit to Saddam would aim at including Saddam and the Ba’ath in the “reconciliation” plan and Al-Maliki said that his block would probably be calling for a vote in the parliament to stop Mousa from coming to Iraq!!

While there’s no way to verify these claims I wouldn’t be shocked if it turned out to be true.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what Moussa really wants but I don’t think he has the guts to even try. Just picture the phone call from senior White House officials when they learn that Moussa has applied for a visitor’s day pass to Saddam’s prison!

Also from Iraq: Iraqi prosecutors have issued arrest warrants against five ministers from the US-backed government of the former Iraqi prime minister Ayad Allawi over the misappropriation of military procurement funds. About $1 billion were spent on overpriced deals for poor quality weapons and military hardware in order to launder cash...
