This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

Bush Will Sacrifice Anything to say Mission Accomplished

Digby says

'Iraqi women have enjoyed secular, western-style equality for more than 40 years. Most females have no memory of living any other way. In order to meet an arbitrary deadline for domestic political reasons, we have capitulated to theocrats on the single most important constitutional issue facing the average Iraqi woman --- which means that we have now officially failed more than half of the Iraqis we supposedly came to help. We have "liberated" millions of people from rights they have had all their lives.'

Women in restrictive Muslim societies will now lose another touchstone in their aspirations to achieve freedom and parity with men. It must be heartbreaking for them to see the rights of Iraqi women disintegrate much as those did in Afghanistan...

Bush and all the Theocrats don't give a damn about the rights of the Iraqi women. Hell, they don't give a damn about women's rights here.
