NS&S> we've got 6,236 signatures, help us get to 10,000 Iraq will undoubtedly fall to Shiite rule as did Iran. Even if this law were to pass it would never be honored.

As I posted in the related Care2 Causes article:

This would not have happened if the United States had not INVADED AND DESTROYED IRAQ. Iraq before was a TOTALLY SECULAR country where people of various religions got along with each other, but the Rulers, altho venal, corrupt, dictatorial, etc., were SECULAR NOT RELIGIOUS.

Now, IRAQ IS MUCH WORSE OFF than if Bush had never invaded. Remember, there WERE NO WMDs, Iraq had NOTHING TO DO with 9/11, and Saddam Hussein DID NOT SPONSOR "TERRORISTS", but kept them out of his country! All of which Americans in general were deliberately made CONFUSED about....
America, thru the CIA, introduced RELIGIOUS STRIFE which hadn't existed before, at least not openly and bloodily. It was introduced as a way of controlling the populace, as those pesky Iraqis seemed to not "appreciate" our goodness in invading them, and kept, darn it! resisting us whenever they got a chance to shoot or bomb an American.
So, THOSE 9-YEAR-OLDS can THANK AMERICA for the introduction of RELIGIOUS CONTROLS out of the CHAOS we are leaving behind, the Religious groups are the only ones strong enough to ORGANIZE anything....

To BMutiny - you're so right ... it's just ... nobody wants to hear the truth. Besides - it would go against the "New Middle East Order" which Condie Rice elaborated publicly in Tel Aviv in 2007 so eloquently.

The aim for Afghanistan is achieved, the puppets in place and the resources secured.
The aim for Iraq is achieved: split in three and partially ruled by the "bearded retards" a.k.a. Muslim Brotherhood.
The aim for Sudan is achieved: split in two down the production fault (and who do we blame now for the war in the South as the "evil Muslims" can't be blamed?)
The aim for Lybia is achieved: split down the production fault, partially ruled by the "bearded retards" and fits today the description of a "failed state".
The aim for Egypt was achieved - the plan to split it in three was taking hold - and then we kicked the "bearded retards" out of office ... and the US is still in temper tantrum mode about it. Who knows were we're going!
The aim for Syria is yet not achieved - we'll have to wait to see the results. The idea is to split it in three.
Qatar is fully in the pocket of the US and with it one of the biggest natural gas reserves (the South Pars Dome Field) in the Arabian Gulf.
The US and Israel are still working on Iran with its vast oil reserves as well as one of the biggest natural gas reserves (the North Dome Field ).

And so on and so forth - Ukraine and Venezuela are in the making in different ways.

But yeah ... give the people something to be outraged and let's forget about the bigger picture and "game" ...

Stay safe!
