Iraqization. (Al-`Arqanah). Bush and his crowd wanted to turn Iraq into an emulatable model for the Middle East. In the press conference that `Amr Musa (secretary-general of the Arab League) gave in Beirut today, many of the questions by nervous journalists were about the fears of `arqanah (Iraqization) of Lebanon. The word was first used by Musa at the beginning of his mission when he warned against the horrific prospect. Add that to the list of accomplishments of Bush and his administration.
