Iraqi government sworn in

From the Associated Press:

Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari pledged to unite Iraq's rival ethnic and religious factions and fight terrorism as the nation's first democratically elected government was sworn in Tuesday amid escalating violence.

"You all know the heavy legacy inherited by this government. We are afflicted by corruption, lack of services, unemployment and mass graves," al-Jaafari told lawmakers after taking the oath of office before the National Assembly. "I would like to tell the widows and orphans ... your sacrifices have not gone in vain."

One by one, al-Jaafari and members of his Cabinet walked to a podium and pledged to defend Iraq and its people as Iraqis faced a surge of violence that has killed nearly 170 people in six days.

Man this must really burn the Democrats up. And the war protestors, they must be furious. How dare those Iraqis actually form a government when “everyone” all along knew the war would fail, and it was just about oil, anyway, in spite of the fact that gas prices are at all time highs. Some people just have no consideration whatsoever. After all the sacrifices the anti-war movement made protesting, and the Iraqi people have the unmitigated gall to actually form a legitimate, peaceful government.
