KURDS SAY THANK YOU--AWESOME AD ON FOXNEWS!!!!
THE KURDS

Posted on 11/09/2005 8:25:17 AM PST by Protect the Bill of Rights

I just saw an awesome ad on FOXNEWS.

The Kurds say THANK YOU!

[Paraphrased] Reminds us Saddam's goal was to eliminate all Kurds. Now Saddam is gone. Kurds are safe. They might have mentioned the gassing-I started paying full attention only when I knew what the ad was.

And separate shots of men, women, kids who look at camera and say "Thank You!"

Moderator, this should probably be a vanity, but the very fact this commercial is airing now, when support on the war may be waning is news in & of itself (at least in my book). But if it needs to go elsewhere, feel free. My feelings won't be hurt.

BTW-while we are waiting for the WH to come out swinging, the Kurds have already started!

Iraq should change the venue of Sadaam's trail to Kurdistan.

Bravo. About time someone said thanks! Geez, wonder why they didn't buy time on CNN ;)

I heard about this yesterday on Freeps, but haven't seen the ad of yet. That's just great.

Thank you for this news. Maybe their ARE some Muslims who practice their religion instead of using it as a political rallying cry for what is really fascism pure and simple. May God grant the true believers of peace his speed in ending these barbarians masquerading as Muslims.

Sounds great.

It's nice to be thanked for our sacrifices by someone.

The Bush White House could be a lot more aggressive and effective in getting the word out than it is.

<< It actually appears to be a Kurdish run site too. It warms the heart. If we allowed a Khurdish state, aside from war with Turkey, would it help the area or hurt it?

Excellent! So nice to see, via the streaming link. I'm tuning in to FOX in hopes of seeing it live. This is wonderful news. I hope in the future, Iraqis will be able to air such an ad. It reminds us all, and our left, just why we went in.

I'm with you - thank God I didn't have my mascara on before I watched it.

And I'm sure our fighting men and women have only one thing to say about this:

"You're welcome."

and our government is calling Turkey suppressing the Kurds and denying Armenia genocide as a democratic country. This is not right. We should cut off relations with Turkey and let Kurds have their country.

They need to air it on the Lame Stream Media stations. FNC viewers already know the truth.

I email them to thank them for their ad.

Thank you also!
We pray for your peace and prosperity. I can only wish that that the removal of Saddam had been done much sooner and with much greater support from others on the outside. Not only was Saddam evil, but also the failure of others who had the power to act and did nothing.
America has suffered ridicule for what it has done in Iraq but the support and thanks from the the Kurdish people make us certain the the right thing was finally done.

I liked it a lot on F&F. Have to give Ed credit, even though I don't care for her much, she tried to bring it up, but then doofus changed the subject to their pictures on a bus going by outside. I found that highly offensive.

Not a problem, I didn't take it that way at all. Just got a chuckle because everytime I search, I use the one word not in the title. Sometimes it suks to be me, LOL!

It is always interesting to predict what the leftist negative spin to something like this will be. Like when the PM of Iraq addressed both Houses of Congress and they said he was a puppet.

Oh, no doubt. They will say it shows Iraq is divided and on the brink of civil war. Bush fails.

Today, at my real estate multiple listing service meeting all of us vets were asked to stand up and say where we served etc.

One gentleman stood up and introduced himself saying that while he had not served in the U.S. Military, he had served in the South Vietnamese army and fought besides the Americans against his country's enemies.

He said thank you to all the Americans who fought to help keep his country free. He said if he had been killed, he would have died defending his country, but he is forever grateful for those from America who fought, were wounded or killed for him and his country.

Made me feel good.
