Raed Triumphs the People's Government of Iran As the Great Middle Eastern Democracy

But Iraqi federalist democracy is a colonialist plot.

The US administration is giving Kurdish dirty leaders their small haven, in exchange for them supporting the occupation.

Gosh, Raed's knack for Logic Of The Bizarre places him in competition with only himself. How does he do it? How does he continuously top himself as the High Priest of the Absurdist philosophy. He's a national treasure.

[Addendum] Raed also says:

If anyone outside the US forgot about the "Balkanization" that the US administration did in Yugoslavia, please read more about it. If anyone inside the US survived the collective amnesia and still remember the Balkanization, please try to spread the word.

A) The US didn't "Balkanize" Yugoslavia. Perhaps certain European countries made it worse by recognizing declared states before it was clear they could stand on their own, but the only thing the US did was to give Europe the backbone it needed to stop the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and Kosova. (You remember the Bosnians and Kosovans, Raed? Those secular Muslims the US rescued?)

B) For the record, I was against the US getting involved in Bosnia and Kosova in Serbia. I thought the most we should have done is partitioned the region into defensible Croatian, Serbian, and Bosnia territory and only bombed the hell out of areas that left their little fascist corners. Unlike Iraq, I didn't see how it was in the US interest create a pluralist state in Eastern Europe (but then that was before 9-11). And I thought that if we did anything in Serbia we should declare Kosova independent from Serbia and grant Serbia some of the historic sites in the northern part of the region.

Still, that's not what we did. And I can understand the honest liberal point of view that motivated the chosen policies there.

But Raed? As always he has sided with the dictators, the genociders, and the most cruel dregs of modern governments. So lets update the list of noble leaders Raed has sidle-up to:

  • Slobodan Milosevik
  • Radovan Karadzic
  • Arafat
  • The Iranian Mullahs
  • Saddam Hussein

Who is next? How long before Stalin is becomes a harmless do-gooder threatened by the US?
