One Iraqi's View

Naseer Flayih Hasan Is one Iraqi who spares no bones when he iterates his opinion of Leftist "peace activists".

The title tells the story in a nutshell:"How the Left Betrayed My Country - Iraq"

Here's a couple of teasers:

After those, and many other, experiences, we finally comprehended how little we had in common with these “peace activists” who constantly decried American crimes, and hated to listen to us talk about the terrible long nightmare that ended with the collapse of the regime. We came to understand how these “humanitarians” experienced a sort of pleasure when terrorists or former remnants of the regime created destruction in Iraq—just so they could feel that they were right, and the Americans wrong!

It’s worth noting, as well, that the general attitude of peace activists I met was tension and anger. They were impossible to reason with. This was because, on one hand, the sometimes considerable risks they took to oppose the war made them unable to accept the fact that their cause was not as noble as they believed. Then, too, their dogmatic anti-American attitudes naturally drew them to guides, translators, drivers and Iraqi acquaintances who were themselves supporters of the regime. These Iraqis, in turn, affected the peace activists until they came to share almost the same judgments and opinions as the terrorists and defenders of Saddam.

And Mr. Hasan is not a Pollyanna shill for the American shill:

We believed—and still believe--that America’s removal of the regime opened a new way for democracy. At the same time, we have no illusions that the U.S. came to Iraq on a white horse to save our people. We understand this war is all about national interests, and that America’s interests are mainly about defeating terrorism. At this moment, though, U.S. interests are doing more to bring about democracy and freedom in Iraq than, say, the policies of France and Russia—countries which also care little for the Iraqi people and, worse, did their best to save Saddam from destruction until the last moment.

Now go read the rest.

Great post, Naseer Flayih Hasan obviously can think for himself and is not afraid to speak the truth, he see's through the charade the left puts up purporting the American effort to establish a representative government in Iraq as a criminal endeavor. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words, this one says it all about the left:
