I find this exceptionally ironic! I read an article in the Sunday newspaper which commented on the War in Iraq and the transistional government. It said that on eof the major parties in Iraq is the communist party. Also, it's the only party with widespread support across religions and is the only one with Jewish membership. So... What happens if the American troops leave Iraq? An election will be held and guess who wins? The Communists!! So, America overthrew a right wing dictatorship to get control of Iraq'a oil. However, what they didn't see is that within a couple of years, those oilfields will be LEGALLY nationalised meaning they won't have control over 'em. Also, USA can't have a puppet government with communists! And what about relations with Cuba, Vietnam and North Korea. Surely if America is to be friendly towards Iraq, they must reconsider relations with other governments with left tendencies? I'm starting to think that the invasion of Iraq was probably the stupidest thing America has done for a while.
