Iraq: Remade in the Republican Image

After the fall of Saddam, during the week that we were actually greeted as liberators, the Bush Administration probably drooled at the opportunity to build a country - from the ground up - where conservative ideals were made institutions, where all the goals of Conservatism could be reached and implemented without opposition.

That effort seems to be the only success BushCo can claim in Iraq.

From the Washington

UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 19 -- Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's office has instructed the country's health ministry to stop providing mortality figures to the United Nations, jeopardizing a key source of information on the number of civilian war dead in Iraq, according to a U.N. document.
Don't like the numbers? Just stop measuring them! It's the GOP's all purpose solution.

It's the governmental equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and yelling 'la la la la la' at the top of your lungs.
