A comment

Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine posted a comment I wrote, about an anti-American Iraqi, on his site.

Use the permalinks; just called LINK under his posts. In this case, it should be this one, which looks like this:
http://www.buzzmachine.com/archives/2005_04_09.html#009432 .

What he quotes from you is worth repeating here, BTW:

"I was talking to an Iraqi anti-American once, and I asked him, do you want the Americans to leave, he said no that would be disasterous; then I said do you support their attacker, he said yes!!! He supported what he thought was resistance, yet at the same time he wanted Americans to stay!!! Can someone explain this?

True story."

I wonder if the effort of keeping those opinions separate gives him brain cramps. Hmm, maybe he wants the Americans there because that gives the opponents someone to fight besides each other?

I have linked to his site and the comment in my post. And you are right, I should've repeated the quote here! Thanks for doing it.

Someone was talking about how Riverbend contradict herself in her writing, and I said that most anti-Americans contradict themselves and I gave him this example.

To answer your question

This is the same as a child, wishing to be freed of his parents, while not yet having attained the skills necessary to make a life without his parents.

The Free Iraqis are an intelligent people, they will learn quicker than most predict.

I also enjoy your blog and thank you for your honest words. While I was in Iraq I made many Iraqi friends and I truly wish I could still keep up with them. However, I have since left your country for the relative comfort of my own. I long to return one day to bring my family so they can experience the love, honor, and spirit of patriotism I experienced.
