The critics have not been kind to the prose and the plot, but they miss Saddam's strength. He's a marketer. He is said to have finished the novel just as the war was beginning, when American leaders were fantasizing about their troops' being welcomed as liberators.

Guess what boy wonder, they do welcome the troops as liberators!

I have heard story after story from returning troops that confirm just that. The media will suppress the truth at any cost!

Fantasized? They were welcomed as liberators by the vast majority of Iraqis...and still are.

What drivel. But more proof (as if we need more) that what's harmful to America is gleeful to the Left.

"In those early days, when the memory of Saddam was still fresh, you could walk down a street in Baghdad and be greeted by an Iraqi stranger thanking you for bringing freedom. But even back then..."

"early days?"

"memory?"

"memory?"

We aren't talking 1860 here, but a little over two years! Many Americans have a short memory but I'll bet an Iraqi's can hold pre-war accounts well. Sheesh!

What? The Red Cross must believe that it would be a cruel, inhumane treatment to prevent Saddam from publishing novels while captive?

I would love to know how much foreign money has been used to influence the NYT, in order to keep the anti-American bilge flowing from their primordial sump.

"Get Out, You Damned One."

That ought to be the title of a book about Hillary.

We should have slit his throat when we found him in that sewer. Now he's nothing more than another nut for the left to worship - he joins the ranks of Castro, Stalin, and Jimmy Carter.

I cannot understand why Bush critics on the right and left fail to understand the reality of Iraq. Iraq is terrorist flypaper. It forces the terrorist to fight our strength, (our military) on a battle feild of OUR choosing with numerous allies (the vast bulk of the Iraqi people) with their weakest ability (conventional military strength). In stead of hiding in camps in countries around the world planning attacks on our civilians, the terrorist are going into Iraq and getting killed. What is really despicable is that people who know full well that is what Iraq is all about (Wes Clark, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy et al) are busy doing everything they can to undermind that effort for no better reason then their own political ambitions. The very fact that those people are willing to put their own personal political goals ahead of what is best for the American people indicates clearly they are unfit for any power at any level. What I cannot understand is why! ! spokespeople for the Right seem so willing to join with the Hysteric Left in under minding this effort?
