The oppo soundbite, Iraqi style.

Click the title for a link to the BBC story I'm about to rant on. This article details the response of Iraqi Interior Minister Bayan Jabr to comments from Saudi Foriegn Minsiter Prince Saud al-Faisal.

Here is a link to Yahoo news that describes the statements of the Saudi foreign Minister that provoked the reply from the Iraqi Interior Minsiter.

Don't you love it when your puppet governments officials go off half cocked and start attacking one of your closest allies in the region? I especially appreciate this zinger from the Iraqi Interior Minsiter:

(Bayan Jabr) disparaged Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, as a "Bedouin on a camel".

This puppet is taking his cue straight from Karl Rove when it comes to the opposition it's clear to see. A more politically correct zinger would have read:

(Bayan Jabr) disparaged Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, as a "a nomadic Arab on a large ruminant mammal".

Then Jabr really gets up a head of steam and starts going off on Saudi religion:

"They have one god, he is the king, he is the god, and he rules as he likes. A whole country is named after a family."

Somebody clue this fellow in. We sort of want Saudi Arabia and Iraq to get along. I don't think they will take to kindly to some Iraqi minister calling them all heretics. The Iraqi's are already having enough trouble with Syria and Iran meddling in their affairs. The Saudi Prince coming over here and laying out some facts is not a reason to give them the metaphorical finger. I'm not a big fan of the Saudi's, but the fact is the Prince was right on with his points. When he tells it like it is that is no cause for our Iraqi puppets to cry about it.
