A Plea from Baghdad

by Michael J. Totten
From Mohammed Fadhil in the New York Daily News

It is up to us to show tyrants and murderers like Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hezbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah, Syria’s Bashar Assad, and their would-be imitators who seek to control Iraq’s people and wealth that we, the people, are not their possessions. They can’t take out our humanity and they can’t force us to back down.
The world should ask them to leave our land before asking the soldiers of freedom to do so.
[…]
Those who prefer to bury their heads in the dirt today, and withdraw from this difficult fight, will be cursed forever for abandoning their duty when they were most capable.

I have nothing else to say but read the whole thing.
