I don't often link to specific items on Ted Barlow's blog because I figure anyone who is anyone is already reading him (as well they should be). That said, I commend you to go read this piece on civil discourse. You rock, Ted.
At the end of that same post, Ted links to this Instapundit piece:
In the town of Safwan, Iraqi civilians eagerly greeted the 1st Marine Division.
One little boy, who had chocolate melted all over his face after a soldier gave him some treats from his ration kit, kept pointing at the sky, saying Ameriki, Ameriki.
This is the "peace" movement's worst nightmare, isn't it?
Tens of thousands of mostly youths protested the U.S.-led war against Iraq in Egypt and the Gaza Strip on March 22. More than 20,000 protesters gathered at Cairo's prestigious al Ahzar University, calling on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to provide military assistance to Iraq -- or else step down. Anti-riot police were deployed to contain the protesters, but there been no reports of clashes so far. In addition, about a thousand lawyers held a sit-in protest at their association headquarters in Cairo to protest the government's position on the war. Lawyers associations in Egypt are often connected with the banned Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood which counts thousands of professional Egyptians among its ranks. In Gaza, a reported 10,000 people -- mostly students from Gaza's Islamic University -- filled the streets, chanting "No blood for oil," "Death to America and Great Britain," and "Where are the Arab countries' armies and leaders?" Agence France-Presse reported.
(I'm sure I don't have to say that I fervently hope this particular nightmare remains nothing but a bad dream, but I'm going to say it anyway just so we're all clear on this point.)
UPDATE: Here's another scene from the "peace" movement's nightmares. Is it in your nightmares, too, Glenn? I don't see any mention of it at this time.Posted by Charles Kuffner on March 23, 2003 to Iraq attack | TrackBack
