Spectator Sport

Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi ruffled the feathers of some European leaders when he brushed off those that opposed the U.S. invasion as “spectators.”

With major military operations being launched in Falluja and elsewhere, and Iraq’s increasingly dire need for foreign aid both in dollars and in personnel, this probably isn’t the way to go. Employing the use of public criticism and belittling those from whom you hope to gain support is a strategy that just won’t sell. (Well, not anywhere but here, anyway…)

Concentration is important!
