…Can You Blame Him?

Apparently one world leader is quite dissatisfied with his job:

Iraq’s PM longs to leave office
In an extensive interview with a US newspaper, Mr Maliki said he would certainly not be seeking a second term. A compromise choice, his tenure has been plagued by factional strife within both the country and government, and rumours the US has no faith in him.
“I wish I could be done with it even before the end of this term,” he said.
“I didn’t want to take this position,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “I only agreed because I thought it would serve the national interest, and I will not accept it again.”

The new fallout over Saddam Hussein’s recent execution video is giving rise to journalists maintaining “the video as proof that sectarian motives, rather than the rule of law were behind the execution.” This will undoubtedly only serve to exacerbate the already inferno-rated blaze of Sunni-Shia violence. Tens of thousands of his constituents are already dead — 12,000 during 2006 alone.
Now he wants out. Can you blame him?

One thought on “…Can You Blame Him?

  1. Sectarian execution? Considering the kangaroo court, a judge being fired because he was ‘impartial,’ a bunch of defense attorneys being assassinated, it was more like a Halliburton/Blackwater lynching, don’t you think?
