Maliki is so full of himself

On the road from Fallujah to Baghdad, security checkpoints feature large posters of #Iraq PM Nuri al-Maliki (via Prashant Rao, AFP Baghdad bureau chief)

I wonder if Maliki will ever raise a large installatiion portraying his own hands holding two huge crossed swords over a major highway. Or wwould that be just too blatant?

Petes يقول...

He needs to grow a bigger moustache, Marcus.

*shrug*

It wasn't for Saddam.

lol!

Zeyad يقول...

I had a bigger moustache than Saddam. Where's my monument???

Lynnette In Minnesota يقول...

Hmmm...well, I don't know about a monument, but stay here long enough, grow it back, and we could nominate you for an award. :)

Lynnette In Minnesota يقول...

Btw, don't do that. You look better without it. :)

Zeyad يقول...

You should have seen me with a beard two months ago. I scared everyone at the hospital, lol.

Lynnette In Minnesota يقول...

Aha!

Wild man of the Middle East, eh? :)

I don't know what the attraction is to mustaches and beards. Other than not having to shave, of course.

Ah well, I'm off for the night. I was one of those unfortunate people who had to work today.

Have a nice night. :)

Something has changed. The page seems to pull up a little quicker and the background color is white.

Hmmm...?

Mexicans in my neighborhood celebrating 4th of July. If that isn't weird then I don't know what is. Zeyad's Twitter feed

Everybody likes a party and a day off. :)

Maybe Zeyad is playing around with his blog settings.

I don't find it at all weird.  We even have a word for it; t's called ‘assimilation’.

Assimilation or "adequate integration" doesn't happen overnight. Someday maybe Zeyad will look at things differently. Right now he's got a lot of emotional turmoil to deal with.

To me, being American is a bit more than just playing with fireworks on 4th of July.

I'm glad.

I have always felt that being American has far more to do with the ideals this country was based on, rather than by geographic location, religion, color of skin, etc.

I think it is that which many native born Americans tend to forget and may need newly minted Americans to remind them of.

As to playing around with fireworks, well, everyone has their own way of celebrating America's existence. As long as they don't shoot off their foot I'm good with that. :)

Lee mentioned John Adams in the other thread. If you have never read David McCullough's biography of him I recommend it highly. I rather think this is what he would have said in regard to this post:

Government is nothing more than the combined force of society, or the united power of the multitude, for the peace, order, safety, good and happiness of the people...There is no king or queen bee distinquished from all others, by size or figure or beauty and variety of colors, in the human hive. No man has yet produced any revelation from heaven in his favor, any divine communication to govern his fellow men. Nature throws us all into the world equal and alike...

Don't forget Juneteenth!

Shatha يقول...

please read...

our iraqi government is not doing any work except for our prime minister's work and his supporters so if there should be posters around the city they should be of this great man and besides he didn't ask for these posters to be put up !!

lots of people put them out of love and respect for him!
