    damn, you beat me by 1 minute. i was ready to post this baby for some good news.

    peters is the man, right or wrong. Never afraid to put his ass on the line and say something that might piss off folks or go against the conventional wisdom.

    His previous column this week was great too, especially the bit about "dirt sailors". I'm trying to be one myself :smoke:

    reporting in the major newspapers. The Times headlines and stories have corrected the initial reports of the number of mosques attacked and have emphasized that the violence was quelled and tensions eased by the curfew last Friday and the multi-sectarian calls for calm.

    Iraq's a mixed picture. Some good, some bad. Many risks along the way. The author doesn't acknowledge, for example, that it's not obvious that democracy leads to peace or to allegiance to the U.S. Iraq could easily end up an Islamist democracy. I just hope that this giant social/military experiment succeeds.

    I can't believe the mass hypnosis going on. "There's no civil war in iraq. Selling port operation to uae is a good idea. Pay no attention to the little man behind the curtain."
