On the contrary

This is a very interesting article, about why we were not greeted with hugs and kisses from some of the Iraqis (namely, the Sunnis).

Still, I'd use the word ingrates in a pinch. And I'm in a pinch.

So the waiter quoted in the article essentially says he wished the US had given the people enough time to rise up against Saddaam. That way, the Iraqis wouldn't have to live with the embarassment of relying on outsiders for their liberation.

What a dumbass - didn't he realize time was of the essence! Saddaam had WMDs for goodness sakes. Saddaam had drones that could fly to the US and unleash chemical & biological weapons. Saddaam was buying uranium from Nigeria (I think). And besides, we weren't liberating Iraqis, we were protecting Americans from a "potential" attack.

Could you imagine how great our criminal justice system would be today if we behaved like the Bush administration? "Your honor, I killed him as a preemtive measure. While the victim didn't actually threaten me, he had the capability of killing me."
