Obedience Pledge Required for Government Workers

23-06-2003 21:11

The Los Angeles Times reports that the document is part of the ongoing effort to eradicate any remanents of the outlawed Ba'ath party.

At issue is the sentence, "I will obey the laws of Iraq and all proclamations, orders and instructions of the Coalition Provisional Authority," a vow some in Hillah see as a direct conflict with their religious and national identities.

Hillah residents marched in protest earlier this week after government employees were told they wouldn't be paid unless they signed the document.

Complicating the issue is a fatwa issued by Shi'ite clerics calling for followers not to sign.

In an effort to compromise, community leaders requested the addition of a clause to protect "the interests of the Iraqi people."

Thus far, the civil administration seems cool to the idea, asserting that troublemakers seeking conflict are behind the issue. correspondent Lisa Ashkenaz Croke drafted this report.

22-06-2003 22:01

John Kerry says he and "every one of us" was misled by President Bush concerning Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. And he says the deception is one reason he is running for President. If he was misled, what do we make of his 156 Congressional colleagues who voted against the war resolution in October, 2002?

UK - Ex-GM Minister on Iraq War - World's big problem is the US

20-06-2003 18:39

"[Getting rid of a murderous regime in Iraq] was not the reason why we went to war. My view is that we went to war because America wanted to establish a political and military platform in the Middle East, it saw a need for oil and of course it wished to support Israel. Weapons of mass destruction, if they existed, even on the most threatening predictions, were certainly not going to put Europe or the US at risk. But Tony Blair took the view that if you are a close ally you have more influence than if you are a protagonist.

The suicide bombers recruited in the Middle East live by a death cult philosophy which legitimates the destruction of innocent bystanders as a way of achieving paradise.
In all modern history, there has been nothing like this organized cult of death designed to achieve political aims via religious faith and reward.
