I'll say Ireland is on side.

My smile couldn't have gotten any broader last night when an Iraqi native (a doctor now exiled in Ireland) told off Labour party peacenik Michael D. Higgens.

I can't give his exact words, but he got a cheer from the audience when he asked Higgens how he could seriously sit there and say he knew more and better about the tyrannic regime than himself, an Iraqi native who had family members executed by having nails driven into their skulls. The applause came when he said to Higgens that he had LIVED under the regime, Higgens had viewed it 'voyeuristically'.

I also chuckled when he insulted Higgens (a member of parliament and a poet) by suggesting he stick to writing poetry! *LOL*

The thing I simply don't get love is why these people refuse to understand that Saddam Hussein is evil and should be deposed, just out of general principles.

Love, Ivan

What a wonderful moment! I wish I could have had that man with me in New York last weekend, when I was subjected to the most awful pro-Saddam ravings from my liberal friends. I just don't understand how they can do that.

That is great news from Ireland.

Too bad only some truths are allowed; the left would always prefer that its invented truths carry the day. It's a bucket of cold water when they hear their "truths" disputed from an indisputable source.

He realises that it will be dangerous for Europeans to be walking around there; from an Iraqi perspective, they could just as easily be Americans.

A Irish "peacenik" mistaken for an American and shot. How deliciously appropriate. The prospect is enough to drive an atheist back to the Rosary.
