I found this handwritten letter to George Bush on an Iraqi blog last month. The letter, dated November 1st of this year, is posted on the Road of a Nation blog>.
There's no question that Iraq is not going as smoothly as the administration had hoped, and Iraq is clearly a very dangerous place for our soldiers. But the freedom and prosperity of 25 million people lay in the peace, as do prospects for a peaceful US ally in the heart of the Middle East. Let's hope that more and more Iraqis like Sarmad begin to take the lead within that nation's political discourse.
