Over 140 innocent Iraqis and brave policemen were brutality murdered by terrorists over the past 3 days. It now appears that the Saddamists, Islamic radicals from outside and inside are ready to do anything, and I mean anything under heaven, to force this new government to fail. They know it quite well. If this government succeeded then the Iraqi plan will succeed. And if the Iraqi plan succeeded, then just like Churchill, Sadat, and Reagan, Bush will turn out to be right and will have the last laugh.
Did the Arab media cry "massacre" and "ethnic cleansing" just like it does when Israel kills 5 Palestinians in a single day? No. Did the Arab press publish gruesome pictures of dead bodies? No. Ops, I didn't know that a Muslim corpse is worth more when it has an Israeli or an American bullet in it! Terrorists in Iraq killed more civilians than Israel did in the 4 years old Palestinian uprising. What are we hearing from the Arab media? An ugly hush, and an uglier attempt to explain the daily carnage just to avoid shifting the Americans to the "good guys" column.
Egypt's and the region's largest newspaper, Al Ahram, published a silly editorial claiming that to stop those bombings, Iraq has to reach the elections process as soon as possible. I can't believe how silly and rather stupid the region's largest newspaper can get. The answer to their la-la-land editorial came today. The Taliban shot 16 Afghans who went to register for the upcoming elections. I don't see any difference between the Taliban and the thugs we are fighting in Iraq. The main aim of the Taliban and the thugs we have in Iraq is to derail the political process in both countries because they know they will turn out to be the biggest losers from those elections. And they know quite well that America's plan will succeed if those elections went ahead.
I am beginning to feel real sick from the overdose of "Arab opinion" I get everyday. The hypocrisy just chokes me.
I hear some grumbling Arab telling me "but America never cared about elections. It supported dictators in the region for the past 60 years." I don't care about the past. Bush was born on September 11, 2001.
