<< Now all those crazed looting masses are our problem. >>

I don't think a few looters should be perceived as masses of thieving Iraquis...I'm sure the "average" Iraqui is a decent person just trying to get by and find a little happiness. Nor would I presume that we have now angered "the few Arabs and Muslims who did not hate us already." So, all those Iraquis who were dancing in the street in celebration of their first taste of freedom were actually hating us? Could'a fooled me...

I'm not naive...I know there's a long way to go and we're in this for the long haul. But this was a tremendous victory, both for the beleagured Iraqui people and for the U.S. We have eliminated a vicious enemy in Sadaam Hussein.
