by Stephen Pizzo | Oct 20 2006 - 1:19pm | Mark today, October 20, 2006, on your calendar. When the history of George W. Bush's Iraq misadventure is written this is the day that will mark the beginning of the end. Today militias loyal to Iranian backed mullah, Muqtada al-Sadr, took over the southern town of Amara. Al-Sadr has been waiting for his Tet moment, and it came today. The fat man has sung. It's over. George W. Bush's vision of "a free and democratic Iraq," will now be replaced by an Iranian style Islamic theocracy. Funny how things happen. Just yesterday I was cleaning old files off my computer when I came across a column I penned on August 23, 2005 - 14 months and several hundred dead US G.I's ago. This morning that file was still on my screen. For some reason I couldn't bring myself to delete it. So instead I read it again. And lo and behold, I didn't have to change a single word of it. Here it is again -- because here we are now. It's a Boy! Congratulations George W. Bush, you are the father of a bouncing baby Islamic Republic! What-ya mean you want a paternity test? Who else could be the father? Saddam was a dictator and despot, but a secular one. He used to have troublesome mullahs whacked. Anyway, you have him locked up. So we know he didn't do it. No, George, I am afraid you have to take responsibility for fathering the world's newest little mullah. Come on now, don't be ashamed, stuff happens. You thought you were just going in for some heavy petting and, wham ! - the next thing you know you've created a another Islamic brat that's going to blame you for everything that's wrong with the world. Sharper than a serpent's tooth, huh? Of course you may have a hard time explaining this to your fundamentalist Christian "base" back home here. Lots of us tried to get you to abort this thing before it got to this point, but now it's too late. And you'll will have to explain why a few thousand US kids had to die just so Iraqi men can marry girls as young as nine, and then legally beat the crap out of them if they don't toe the radical Islamic line. And I have to wonder what your pal, the most reverend Jerry Falwell, will have to say about grown men marrying pre-teen girls? But there's no escaping it George, it's your doing. Maybe you can make Rev. Jerry feel better if you explain that Muslims also oppose abortion. Now if some Iraqi guy knocks up some little girl, she'll have a playmate in nine months. You can tell Jerry that and see how it floats. Half the humans on earth are women. But in your new Islamic Republic, George, half of all Iraqis will be less equal than the other half. Women will have to cover up or risk being beaten by misogynistic thugs masquerading as "religious police." Whatya gonna say when TV footage of that reaches Red State women voters -- they were asking for it dressing like that? Maybe you should ask those women camp outside your Texas ranch every August about all this. After all, their kids died helping deliver your new baby. You might first notice that none of those women are wearing burquas. It's hot in both Iraq and Crawford. But at least in Crawford women can wear shorts. Not so soon in your new Iraq where, despite temperatures over 100 degrees, women will be pressured to cover up in heat-absorbing black, head to toe - and not because black is slimming, either. As they sweat and look out at the world through eye-slits, they will have you to blame for that, daddy. You may also start work on how you are going to break this news to those in your administration hawking traditional marriage. They may be surprised to discover that under Islamic law when a guy is done with a wife all he has to do is say, "I divorce you," three times in a row, and she's out. Talk about quickie divorces! Eat your heart out, Nevada. How about alimony? Forget about it. Women have no community property rights under Islamic law, not even the right to the children they bear during a marriage. But you may find some allies for this in Utah because Muslim men can have more than one wife - at the same time! (I wonder how your pal, Tony Perkins will feel about that? Your religious rights' mantra has been that, "One man, One women" is a marriage. You may be able to soothe them by reminding them that homosexuality is a capital crime under Islamic law. (Hey, like father, like son.) Oh George, George, George -- we tried to tell you to pull out early, but oh no, you just had to go all the way. Now you've done it - created a bad seed of a kid that's destined to grow up to become an ally of that militant Iranian gang next door. It's too late to do anything about this now, George. But don't be too hard on yourself. You're not the first father to have a kid go sideways on him. Jeffrey Dahmer, Charlie Mason, Ted Bundy, O.J. Simpson, Adolf Hitler, Richard Nixon, all had daddies. All you can do now is spend the rest of your life trying to convince history that you gave the kid every chance in life but he still went bad on you. It won't work. History is cruel that way. There are no spin doctors in history books.
