NOW HERE’S A PEACE PROTESTOR I can live with:

One of the marchers was 14-year-old Hussein Mohammed who was born in Iraq but came to London with his family seven years ago.

Hussein said that he was not actually opposed to an attack on Iraq as long as not too many civilians were killed. The teenager said that even American rule would be preferable to that imposed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

He said: “I’m against Saddam because he doesn’t have a heart for any people. I think he should be attacked. I’d rather have America than Saddam.”

But the boy said that any war should be directly against Saddam’s regime and not civilians.

Sounds like he and Rumsfeld are on the same page.
