  • Liberty on the Block in Iraq

       August 23, 2005

    You know, I'm not all "U Rah Rah W!" all the time, but every once in awhile the President says something that reminds me of why I like him so much. I love this quote from today on Iraq's Sunnis:

    "This talk about Sunnis rising up, I mean the Sunnis have got to make a choice. Do they want to live in a society that's free, or do they want to live in violence?" Bush told reporters at a resort in Idaho.

    Exactly. Sooner or later, the Iraqis have to take responsibility for the future of their country. I understand that the typical "Mohammed Iraqi" is a) probably still paralyzed by fear of the terrorists and b) still suspicious that the United States will cut bait and leave their country to be ruled by whoever has the most weapons. Be that as it may, at some point Iraqis have to have the courage to defy the terrorists in their midst. Of course, many of them have and there's great progress (as Chrenkoff regularly reports) in much of Iraq. To get there themselves, the Sunnis need to take this quote from Richard Nixon of all people, to heart:

    Yet we can maintain a free society only if we recognize that in a free society no one can win all the time. No one can have his own way all the time, and no one is right all the time.

    Heck, the rest of us, from the Cindy Sheehans to the Pat Robertsons would do well to remember that sentiment.
