Iraq's Founding Fathers

This Modern World: Billmon: The Philadelphia Experiment

Glad to see the blogosphere pointing out Chimpy's idiotic comparison of this Iraq Constitution draft to our own:

"The men who met in Philadelpha in the summer of 1787 were the winners of a protracted revolutionary struggle for national independence -- not the leaders of a collection of squabbling ethnic and religious factions, many of whom spent years in exile and then rode back into their native land on the backs of foreign tanks. The framers of the U.S. constitution expelled an occupying army. The founders of the New Iraq are guarded by one."
