Tell Saudi Arabia We're Going It Alone

Here's my favorite quote from this story about the Bush administration refusing troops from Muslim countries to help out in Iraq:
At one point, the Saudis proposed that Muslim forces be placed under the command of the Iraqi government. That idea won over Allawi, but not the United States. "The Americans wanted ultimate control, and that made it impossible to make this work," said the Iraqi official.

Internationalize the peacekeeping force? Nah.
Recognize Iraqi sovereignty? Nah.

Empires need colonies. That's the new reality these idiots think they can recreate.
Is there someone, anyone in this administration who can get his head out of the 19th century for an hour or two to make some decisions based on something other than blind faith?
