No single US’er cared about “the poor oppressed Iraqis” then.
The liberation of the Iraq people from the tyranny of a murderous despot was accomplished by the dedication and bravery of 150,000 American soilders who believed in and cared about the oppressed Iraqi people.
Bush didn’t fight. Colin Powell didn’t fight. Young American soilders fought and some payed with their lives. Ask them, you who carp, and they will tell you…they* freed* the oppressed people of Iraq. And only those who fought know the reason for their fighting.
And those who in their secret hearts wish the American reconstruction of Iraq to fail are mere pissants among these brave, worthy, and selfless men.
