Some of you are probably aware of the take that many Iraqi nationals have on the protests, but check out this article by an Iranian journalist for a good discussion of the issue:

Raises some familiar questions: why is no one protesting Sadam's refusal to disarm, which is really the issue at the heart of the conflict? Also another nice little expose on what a jack@ss and hypocrite that Jesse Jackson is. Man, am I sick of that guy taking on every stupid cause for the purposes of self-promotion.

Boy, just when I think I have my mind settled on a "no war" stance, something like that really stirs me. Thank you for posting it. I think the war protesters bring up some good points, but I think they are going off the deep end by villifying Bush and Blair.

Thanks for the article. The Iraqi exile voice is one you do not hear enough of in this debate. These exiles are going to be an important part of rebuilding a new Iraq. These are Doctors, engineers, poets, teachers and other professionals who will return to make Iraq a better place. Hopefully that example will lead to more change through out the Middle East.
