    Good news I suppose. They still dont like us in particular, but at least they hate the terrorists more.

    Is every positive utterance an inch off your manhood?

    No, but when it comes to people who a month ago were trying to kill us, suddenly becoming our allies, i remain cautious.

    We're not saying "new allies"; we're saying "good news". Does this even qualify unquestionably as good news? How could it be bad or even neutral news?

    No it is good news. But it is not great news because these people still hate us, they just happen to hate the terrorists more. The enemy of my enemy is my freind, for the time being.

    For now I guess we take what we can get? But if the tide keeps turning this way, it may signal the beginning of Iraqis' taking destiny into their own hands leaving us to get out of there sooner.

    DD, I hate to break it to you, but there are general patterns of belief and thinking that society accepts as being generally lib, and generally conserative. I'm sorry the accuracy of these generalizations confounds you.


    Back to the issue at hand. You cannot say "the iraqis hate us". You haven't talked to them all. So again, I implore you, stfu.
