Iraqi calls Saudi 'camel jockey'

BBC: Iraq minister hits out at Saudis

Bayan Jabr said Iraqis were proud of their country, and would not accept lessons on human rights and democracy from Saudi Arabia.

And he disparaged Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, who made the comments, as a "Bedouin on a camel".


How amusing.

The Iraqi's minister's comments displays, among other things, just how amateurish the Iraqi government is. It's idiotic to alienate your neighbors when you need them; the Saudis are doing their best to combat the extremism that's just as threatening to their existence as it is to Iraq's.

It's staggering how much of a catastrophe the U.S. has created in Iraq, when it could have done so much more, so much better: plus a hundred points for removing Hussein; minus 150 for screwing it up so badly.
