From Washington Post: "the suicide car bomber who killed the head of Iraq's Governing Council on Monday gave shape to a feeling among Iraqi and U.S. officials and common citizens that the country is almost unmanageable." Look at that language. A country is unmanageable? Is that not like old colonial discourse? If occupation by the "White Man" is not working, then the country must be unmanageable. What about self-management? Is self-determination a dirty word in the US?
