I went to a lecture at my university given by Tahir al-Bakaa, the former Iraqi Minister for Higher Education. He spoke in Arabic, but had a translator for us. Someone asked him if the situation in Iraq was really as good as we'd been hearing about. The first word out of his mouth was na'aym.
Na'aym means yes.
He also said this: "Thinking of withdrawal is thinking of defeat. It should be done step by step." This guy knows what he's talking about and has first-hand, unbiased knowledge, unlike the MSM and Congress where we're supposedly in a quagmire.
He also called Saddam Hussein a tyrant. He spoke with him on many occasions and didn't think much of him. He was selected to be the education minister and forced to leave his old job as a professor at Mustansiriya University and join the Ba'ath party. It was an excellent lecture on the REAL situation in Iraq, not want the MSM wants you to hear.
