Shakey BS: Unite Against Terror (196* d) RE: BS: Unite Against Terror 28 Jul 05

Ok so you won't answer, I will.

We should let the international community take over for us.
Well this is what we're already talking about

We should join the international criminal court.
By "we" you mean US, well they probably should but I don't get to vote there

We should hand over the job of taking bids and assigning contract jobs to the international community.
This one is interesting, I first heard calls about this within a month of the end of the invasion (don't quibble about it still being an invasion you know what I mean), anyway, there was a great outcry because the contracts were going to US companies, but, and it's a big one, the US Gov barred certain countries, france springs to mind, from contracts that were being paid for by US money, this bit wasn't reported so widely 'cause it doesn't make good press. Now, are you telling me that the US is telling the Iraqis how to spend Iraqui money. If so that would be wrong but you'll have to google up a bit before I accept it.OK?

We should stop building permanent military bases in Iraq and
I honestly don't know much about this, tell me more. One thing I will say though, if the Iraqis are asking then to leave next year how permanent is permanent?

hand the job of helping the Iraqis build their democracy to a international body that has representatives from enough different countries that any secondary agendas any of them might have will be weeded out and addressed by the body as a whole.
