Saudi minister says Iraq headed for disintegration

"WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Iraq is heading toward disintegration, raising fears of a wider regional conflict, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal warned on Thursday.

He said he did not believe the country was engulfed in full-scale civil war but the trend was moving in that direction.

The comments, to journalists invited to meet with the foreign minister at the Saudi Embassy, marked the second time in two days Saud spoke publicly of his alarm over developments in Iraq and appeared to reflect a growing disagreement between the kingdom and the Bush administration.

"Iraq is a very dangerous situation and a very threatening situation," he said.

"The impression is gradually going toward disintegration. There seems to be no dynamic now that is pulling the country together. All the dynamics there are pushing the (Iraqi) people away from each other," he said.

Asked what Saudi Arabia feared most about the trend, Saud said, "It will draw the countries of the region into conflict and that is the main worry of all the neighbors of Iraq."

He referred specifically to Iran, which is backing and supplying Shi'ites in Iraq, and to Turkey, which would not permit a separate Iraqi Kurdish state on its border."

Recently the Saudi's have been doing a lot better on "policing their act", by rounding up or killing literally hundreds of AQ's over the last few years. Some would argue though that isn't enough.

However, the situation in Iraq cannot be properly accessed without understanding that it has become the "gathering place" for terrorists around the region.

Terrorist love publicity, and if you want front page coverage across the world's media, then you blow up a car in Iraq. If anywhere else it's page 15A. I can see them using this in recruitment, "Come to Iraq and make a impact for Allah!"

What our "War on Terrorism" has caused, and I don't think it was entirely not by design was a war within Islam. Different religious factions within Iraq are the hold up on the Constitution, as are the differing factions a concern with Iraq's neighbors.

One has to wonder: "Was this just designed to get 'em all to fight each other instead of us?"

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
