Worried About Freedom

Pat Roberts explains the real GOP worry about the situation in Iraq. Despite Wolfowitz' idiotic statement that there isn't a history of ethnic strife in Iraq, and I thought he was supposed to be smart, there have always been very serious problems between the ethnicities/religions in what we know of as Iraq. They have always been worried about this, I am sure, but this is the first time one of them has actually come out and said it. In other words, they want freedom for the Iraqis but only their own specific idea of what freedom is for them, i.e., they want them to have freedom if they agree with the decisions made. We've known for a long time that the GOP are full of hypocrites but they never cease to amaze. Then again, they elected an idiot to lead their party and, ostensibly at least, the nation.
