Giant Cockroaches Burrowing Out Of Raed Jarrar's Skull And More On The Pope, Riverbend, Whatever...

Giant Cockroaches are burrowing out of Raed Jarrar's skull prompting him to write about the third anniversary of the alleged Jenin Massacre. Was there really a Jenin Massacre? Hmmmm. Raed's Baathist Pals have massacred far more in Iraq. Perhaps Raed could write about that next time. Don't hold your breath. . .

Alaa offers his respects to the late Pope John Paul II:

This Pope was quite an exceptional man, a true lover of humanity; a man who had the courage of conviction and great character to put aside all scruples of quite a strict faith historically and visit mosque and synagogue and extend his hand of peace to all men regardless of race and religion. He was an activist who did not hesitate to speak out on political and social issues of relevance and urgency in his time. His voice was always heard and presence felt everywhere in the world. We the Iraqis have a special sadness and regret on this solemn occasion: that the express wish of his holiness to visit the birth place of the prophet Abraham here in the land of Mesopotamia; the greatest of all pilgrimages was not to be realized. Yet for believers, as you all know; death is not the end, but rather the beginning of eternal life in the hereafter.


Kurdo talks of the gratitude for the Pop in Kurdistan or Northern Iraq. As a protest against the phrase "Northern Iraq", Medya has started calling the U.S., Southern Canada. . .

Ali Fadhil at Free Iraqi offers advice towards a Better UN:

First I think we should re-identify the problem. It's not that the UN is a weak or corrupt organization. It's that we are dealing with two entirely different sets of regimes using one standard. One set of laws to deal with democratic and authoritarian states. That doesn't sound right.

So the answer may lie in finding two different set of rules, two different organizations to deal with those different states. But that might divide the world so we will have to decide which set of states is more reliable to depend on in solving common global problems. Who's "we" is not that important and it does not mean control of the strong over the weak. Lets think of something similar to the EU. The democratic free nations whether poor or rich, strong or weak should gather and form a mass governed by a set of rules that can get a consensus from all the involved parties. The tyrannical regimes should be kept outside, isolated until they meet a certain requirements set by the new organization.
