I think the Iraqi government is stalling on this, for fear of a nationalist response.

How much more disgusting can this fiasco get? I can't take it anymore. I heard Cindy Sheehan on Democracy Now talking about the wimps in congress today and was really pissed off at all the B.S. from the capitol. I just might be voting your way in 2008.

I want to thank you, man. We can build toward critical mass if everyone votes for what they want. I recently wrote an "Influx Preparedness Checklist" but I'm not sure that anyone is working on it. We mostly need trusted Volunteer Coordinators who can follow up with people who sign up. Here is your state party, I don't know if they're any good: http://www.ohiogreens.org/. And if that's not your cup of tea, reading David Korten's "The Great Turning" might give you cause for hope.

On a related note I heard on NPR there was a news leak from the firm designing the new U.S. Embassy in Iraq. It sounds like it'll be the biggest complex anywhere in the world. Something like 60 football fields in area, residences for thousands grocery store, food court, etc.
If the U.S. were not planning on colonizing and staying in the country why on earth would they need to make such a presence in the country?

Now there's that in addition to the NAFTA superhighway and the barbed wire camps I hear they're building in the mountains. Haven't seen any pictures yet, though.
