Bush, are you listening? The King of Jordan thinks there will be chaos if elections are held in Iraq in Jan. Moreover, he thinks it will result in even more extremist takeover of the country.

Jordan’s King Abdullah has said it will be impossible to hold fair elections in Iraq in the current state of chaos.

He told the French newspaper Le Figaro that only extremists would gain if the elections went ahead in January without the security situation improving.

Correspondents say these were remarkably frank comments from a man Washington regards as one of its key allies in the Middle East.
