Fox Guest Says New Iraq Government May 'Choose' To Be Slaves

Reported by Chrish - August 24, 2005

Monday on Studio B with Shepard Smith, in response to a clip of Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) saying that Iraq is showing similarities to Vietnam, they brought on a former Deputy Secretary of Defense for the George H. Bush Administration, Jed Babbins, to counter.

Babbins said, "The Iraqi people are now free. If they choose to go back and be slaves again and impose a theocracy on themselves, that, unfortunately, is one of the options we've given them." But, he did add that, "The constitutional government of Iraq, whatever it turns out to be, is unlikely to be an enemy."

Comments: Slowly but surely, Fox News is filtering out the word, democracy, where Iraq is concerned. This word play has been apparent in the past for such things as Weapons of Mass Destruction (none), nuclear capability (none) and Saddam and Al Qaeda ties (none).

It's nice that they are continuing in their fashion and the word democracy is slowly going away in reference to Iraq. Now, the women can be slaves as long as they CHOOSE to be and the constitutional government of Iraq is UNLIKELY to be an enemy of the United States. We're settling -- again. Can we then include the word democracy with the above and declare -- NONE?

I think Cindy Sheehan had it right when she said she wants to ask the president what the noble cause is that our soldiers are dying for because it doesn't look like a democracy is coming out of Iraq. The reality is that all the Sunni's need is a 2/3 majority in 3 providences (they control 4) to vote down this constitution on October 15. And you know where that puts us? You guessed it, right back to square one and get another election ready. Where's the purple ink?
