"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Iraqis Government Should Clean Up Their Back Yard First - Speed Dial This!

It's July 4th, time to reflect on our Independence and the freedoms we take so lightly. Our troops our fighting for the freedom and liberty of Iraqis but sometimes I wonder if it's really appreciated.

Iraq's justice minister Tuesday condemned the alleged rape-slaying by U.S. soldiers of an Iraqi woman and the killing of her family. Two legislators demanded the prime minister be summoned to Parliament to give assurances the guilty will be punished.
xxx
The justice minister should understand the concept of innocent until proven guilty. Next he'll be analyzing the ex-soldiers guilt with Greta Van Sustern and her legal mob of pundits.

"If this act actually happened, it constitutes an ugly and unethical crime, monstrous and inhuman, and is a violation of international and Geneva conventions," Justice Minister Hashim Abdul-Rahman al-Shebli, a Sunni Arab, said in a statement.

What about the Sunni insurgents and al-Qaeda, does this upset the justice minister? And.......was Mr. Abdul-Rahman al-Shebli one of the persons in parliament who was alledgedly on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's cell phone speed dial?
xxx
And... isn't it odd the story about two Iraqi parliament members on Zarqawi's speed dial doesn't have any legs?

He [Abdul-Rahman al-Shebli] demanded that the U.N. Security Council and other international organizations make sure troops are punished. "The Iraqi judiciary should be informed about this investigation which should be conducted under supervision of international and human organizations. Those involved should face justice," he added. "The ugliness of this crime demands a swift intervention of the U.N. Security Council to stop these violations of human rights and to condemn them so that they will not happen again."
xxx
Mr. Abdul-Rahman al-Shebli wishes to change our court system while his government can't get a handle on terrorism and they negotiate with terrorists, offering amnesty as a method to stop the killings of hundreds of innocent civilians.
xxx
"We demand severe punishment for the five soldiers involved," Ms. Ayda al-Sharif, a female member of the Iraqi parliament said. "Denouncements are not enough. If this act has taken place in another country, the world would have turned upside down."
xxx
An insurgent group, the Mujahedeen Army, distributed an account of the incident on an Islamist Web site which generally corresponded with details already made public. It appeared the report was designed to draw attention to the incident and stir up hostility to the U.S. military.
xxx
It's seems members of the new Iraqi government are following the lead of insurgents instead of the rule of law and due process.
