Iraq’s Christians flee as extremist threat worsens
That again. What Bush’s minders have wrought, in a country that was a dictatorship but a secular one where Christians could practise. From Samer al-Batal who writes:
Sheikh Ra`d Mutar Saaleh, religious head of the Mandæans, has also been murdered recently in Iraq by gunmen.
Bush admits Iraq is like Vietnam

Republicans’ popularity lowest in 14 years

New Jersey: Bob Menendez is a credible default choice
He’s a statist, probably corrupt and wrong on pro-life issues but functionally so’s the other side. And he held his own recently against Tom Kean Jnr in a radio debate. He’s opposed the war on Iraq all along like anybody with any sense and also was against Bush’s attempted Dubai ports deal.
