Prime Minister Allawi

Asked if the Prime Minister had been indicating this morning that Prime Minister Allawi of Iraq would be visiting the UK in the near future, the PMOS pointed out that Prime Minister Allawi himself had said that he hoped to visit Britain at some point within the next few weeks. Final dates were still being worked out.

  1. Please insert the word "Unelected" in that statement.

    Meanwhile, down the memory hole:

  3. I agree with Iraqi^^, try and have some respect guys. Allawi is a strong leader, and has a very clear vision for the future.

  4. Allawi is a thug and a murderer. He is the puppet of the US and values the dollar in his pocket more than the welfare of Iraqi people.

    He has done nothing about US war crimes or the crimes of people in his own administration. He will be put in power after a phoney election and then use the US/UK military to kill all his enemies just like he is doing at the moment.

  5. Iraqi; why are people trying to assassinate him? Is it because he is so obviously a puppet of the Yanks, even down to the way he agrees that everything the American military does is justified?

    John Laurence; why should we have respect for Allawi? Respect is earned not God-given and so far he has done NOTHING to command respect. Indeed, he has done a lot to command total contempt, and by extension attempts on his life, because of his support of American foreign "policy" in Iraq over the well-being of the Iraqi people.

  6. Incidentally Iraqi, although you may not think it funny that Allawi is unelected, he is in fact unelected and the fact that he is being allowed to run for President (and will no doubt win, because he is the Americans stooge, as Hamid Karzai is in Afghanistan) is another nail in the coffin for so-called democracy in Iraq. The funny thing here is that ironically you seem to have missed that point altogether…

  7. John and Iraqi;

    Saddam was "a strong leader" with a "very clear vision for the future". His life was also "at risk everyday of people trying to assinsainate him". Do I take it you think we should we have respect for him?

  8. Well put like that, they don’t come much stronger than Joseph Stalin, or good ol’ Adolf. Respect where it’s due…
