I should not coast on others' good works but Wretchard deserves the linky love
There is terror, it is aimed at people who do not deserve it, have not invited it, it is indiscriminate a deeply cruel.
It is a nightmare. A waking nightmare.
But amidst it all, real hope. See, the Iraqis are currently preparing their bill of rights (I don't such documents are necessary but whatever, if they are sensible they will not hurt).
They had some guff in there about Sharia law and Israelis never being able to be citizens.
But no longer.
That is great. That's worth a round of applause.
That's what the whole International effort in Iraq has been about. Liberating it to enable its citizens to craft a democracy.
Someday soon there will be a free trade agreement with Iraq too.
Normalcy. That is the aim. And it is terrific to see some of them going for it. Most of them I am sure.
