Dems whack Iraqi PM for not standing up for Israel

News & Politics

Has the world gone completely insane?

It looks that way to me. Consider these two stories.

First, this from Reuters:

U.S. congressional Democrats expressed alarm on Tuesday over Iraq's denunciation of Israel in the Middle East conflict, and some said Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's address to Congress should be canceled unless he apologizes.
This story has so much that's so wrong, and on so many levels.
A group of about 20 House of Representatives Democrats sent a letter to House Speaker Dennis Hastert urging the Illinois Republican to secure an apology from Maliki or cancel the address on Wednesday to a joint meeting of Congress. Some said they planned to boycott the speech.[…]
OK, here come the Dems, who were too chicken-shit to stand up to Bush when he declared a War on Terrr (said chicken-shititude having led to the invasion of Iraq, secret prisons, etc.), but now have found sufficient spine to take a transparently political whack at our puppet ruler in Iraq for his poor puppetude.

What was his crime, again?
