If Iraq was the Opening Battle on Fundamentalist Islam, It Doesn't Look Good...

If you read some of the nuttier and more xenophobic webblarghs out there*, Islam is a form of evil comparable to Gengis Khan or the French, and that it is only right to irradicate all forms of it from the world. If that's the goal, then perhaps we should be worried that the governing council is trying to model Iraq after the Taliban's Afghanistan.

Actually, people sincerely concerned about human rights should be concerned as well, since the only way to salvage this adventure is to make Iraq a better place when we leave than when we arrived.
