Healing Iraq…

…is a terrific site by an Iraqi blogger. He has lots of good stuff up, but I especially liked this:
“Several hundred Iraqis protested for peace and against terror yesterday at Fardus square in front of the Palestine and Sheraton hotels. The rally was organized by the Iraqi Democratic Trend, prominent tribal leaders, and clerics from southern Iraq. The demos which were led by children carrying flowers called for immediate steps to be taken by the CPA and GC to put a stop to all violence against Iraqi citizens and coalition forces, and to resinstate the Iraqi army after screening out Ba’athist elements.
“Protestors carried signs and banners that said ‘No to terrorism’, ‘Yes for peace’, ‘Iraqis stand united against terror and violence’, ‘Thanks to CPA soldiers’, ‘We thank the coalition for our FREEDOM’.
“By the way, what the hell are news organizations trying to prove by putting terrorism between idiotic quotation marks like this? I’ve decided to put quotation marks myself on the following terms: ‘news organizations’, ‘media’, ‘press’, ‘coverage, ‘reporter’, and ‘journalist’. F*ing morons.”
Good point.
