There are those who think that we should never have invaded Iraq.
Some of these are simply playing politics.
Some of them are committed leftists, for whom any increase in freedom is a disaster directly contradicting their self-appointed position as "the smart people" in a herd of sheeple.
Some of them simply don't have access to actual Iraqi voices, and have to get their news through CNN, etcetera, whose business depends upon reporting the news in the worst possible light.
To the people in this third category, allow me to link here the remarks of the Prime Minister of Iraq, from his press conference today with the President.
In the name of the Iraqi people, I say to you, Mr. President, and to the glorious American people, thank you, thank you.
Thank you because you have liberated us from the worst kind of dictatorship. Our people suffered too much from this worst kind of dictatorship. The signal is mass graves with hundred thousand of Iraqi innocent children and women, young and old men. Thank you.
And thanks to the United States, there are now 50 million Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq liberated by your courageous leadership and decision to liberate us, Mr. President.
To those in America and other countries still ask if war of liberation in Iraq it was the right decision. I say, "Please, please come to Iraq to visit the mass graves, to see what happened to Iraqi people, and to see what's now going on in Iraq."
To those who talk of stability, I say, "Saddam imposed the stability of the mass graves."
