Subject: RE: BS: The way it should be......
We read this article in the Chronicle and dismissed it out of hand because of the statement near the beginning that reads:

"Leading voices in America's "peace" movement are actually cheering against self-determination for a long-suffering Third World country because they hate George W. Bush more than they love freedom."

We have not heard anyone express this sentiment, here on Mudcat or elsewhere. Everyone we know cheered the election in Iraq. The complaints were not against the election, they were against Bush's claims that the election constituted success in and of itself. As we have seen, it was only one small step in a process which, on the whole, may or may not succeed.
