The end of Saddam's Iraq and the beginning of a new era
I sat here trying to write about the fall of Saddam's Baghdad but my mind kept going back to what I read on Little Green Footballs
this morning, because it is very hard to said it any better...
This is a truly historic moment, LGF readers. To the naked protesters, the Hollywood whiners, the Indymedia haters, the BBC and CNN and MSNBC and Al Jazeera and Arab News:
This moment is IN OUR NAME.
Those who sought to keep the Iraqi people in their living hell, who stood in the way of their liberation, and insisted that the US and Britain and Australia and our many other partners had no right to take action to defend both the Iraqis and ourselves: This was NOT IN YOUR NAME.
And we won’t forget where you stood, in your ignorance and fashion-driven hatred of America. We won’t forget.
To those who complain that we're interfering in other countries' internal politics let me be the first to tell you, get used to it! If you have room in your hearts for dictatorial regimes and countries and leaders that aide terrorism then we have no room in our hearts for you.
There would be no excuse for us not to 'interfere' when a country's leader is out of control, believes torture and power through fear is acceptable, hates free societies, and wishes death to the west. Someone has to rid the world of this kind of evil. We have now shown that we have the ability, the willing and the resolve to do it.
Syria, Iran, and North Korea take notice. Change your ways or we're coming for you next.

Couldn't have said it better myself. As Rummy pointed out a little while ago, this is a very good day for Iraq. Well, it's a good day for those of us who believed we were fighting the good fight, too.
I'm so glad I got to see it live. :-)
Good snippet. Theres a point where its protesting and theres a point where your abusing your rights. I think just about all fo the US protesters crossed some major borders and should have been shot on site. One less person on wellfare in my book.
> Theres a point where its protesting and theres a point where your abusing your rights.
What about the rights of people killed by depleted uranium USA bombs?
You (from usrbingeek to the others posting so far and so many other CNN only believers) seem not to be able to open your eyes and CONSIDER that there is a world outside with different countries, opinions, people.
USA has no moral, legal, international right to attack, bomb, invade, destroy, sabotate them according to interests that are openly and declared self-interests.
So, if you are going to consider this a war between USA and the world that doesn't think as USA, you are going to declare war to World.
History will judge this kind of America.
If there is a God, He has probably already judged.
Al, yes, there is a world outside the US and the truth is many people hate the US and its allies. These people have always been taught to hate us and will continue to hate us. There is no changing that. We might as well protect ourselves and those who want to be free by removing leaders that threaten our freedom and his own peoples freedom. There is nothing immoral about that. If you're too blinded by your own hate of us to see that it is your loss.
