Perusing the headlines
Can't help but notice the headlines on this historic day. I'm ecstatic to be on the right side in this debate, because this is a situation where my country did what was right. And the world will benefit.
U.S.: Saddam Likely in Bombed Building
Saddam's Rule Collapses in Baghdad, Scenes of Joy
Iraq's U.N. Envoy: 'The Game Is Over'
And in stark contrast to the celebrations on the streets of Iraq:
Palestinians watching the al-Jazeera and Abu Dhabi satellite stations were stunned at seeing the giant Saddam statue tumble in a Baghdad square after the rapid collapse of Iraq (news - web sites)'s military. "This is a tragedy and a bloody comedy. We cannot believe what we see. What happened? It seems that the Iraqis have given up Baghdad without a fight. Where is the Iraqi army? Have they evaporated?" said Walid Salem, a Ramallah shopkeeper.
Will the Palestinians ever learn? This just goes to show where their hearts are: with a terrorist dictator. They could care less about the scenes of happy Iraqi people. They just wonder where Saddam's fearsome fighters are. There is no equating the Iraqi plight to the situation in Israel.
Catastrophe scenarios posed by Washington fail to materialize
U.S. Tells Iran, Syria, N. Korea 'Learn from Iraq'
Our troops couldn't come home soon enough. And, please, let's not forget our MIA's and POW's. They need to come home, too.
