Iranians Get It
Some comments from people in Iran:

Families who lost their sons and fathers will be looking forward to Baghdad's defeat, she (Leila) said. "Saddam has killed more Muslims than any western or Christian country ever has. That's something we cannot forgive."
"It will be a good thing to have American troops in Iraq. Perhaps that will bring change to Iran," said Namin, a lanky engineering student strolling to class.
"I think only about the consequences of a war. If the war has good consequences, let it be," said another student, Mohammad. "We're not protesting like European students. We don't have a democratic government like they do. We're not acting like them because we're not in European shoes."

Very true, Mohammad, very true. Let us hope that in the coming years you and all Iranians enjoy the peace, prosperity, and freedoms that Europeans today currently enjoy...
