Arthur’s got Good news from Iraq
on its 27th installment.
As Iraq’s president Talabani wrote, “We honour those who sacrificed their lives for our liberation. We are determined out of respect to create a tolerant and democratic Iraq, an Iraq for all the Iraqi people. It will take time and much patience, but I can assure you it will be worth while, not only for Iraq, but for the whole of the Middle East.”
And the whole world, too.
Arthur also writes about The Economist‘s choice of cover, and has some facts to ponder re: the British election.
Meanwhile, it’s time to compare headlines: U.S. Forces Mount Offensive Near Syrian Border With Iraq; Spain’s Libertad Digital:Soldados estadounidenses matan a 75 terroristas durante una ofensiva militar al oeste de Irak, which means, American soldies kill 75 terrorists in military offensive in Western Iraq.
