From IraqPundit:
I know those who are wedded to the idea of a failed Iraq are calling me a deluded idiot and worse. But things are improving slowly. My relatives in Baghdad say there's no comparison; things are much better than they were six months ago. They can visit friends in different areas and walk about the neighbourhood in the evening.

Frankly, I don't understand why so many mock us for wanting a future for Iraq. Is your hatred for George Bush so great that you prefer to see millions of civilians suffer just to prove him wrong?

It really comes down to this: you are determined to see Iraq become a permanent hellhole because you hate Bush. And we are determined to see Iraq become a success, because we want to live.

Well I'd say IraqPundit nailed it spot on in that last paragraph.

Now that Iraq is turning around, Bush Derangement Syndrome is at epidemic levels.

Agreed. One wonders how they consider themselves "the reality-based community."

Never bet against people who want to live.

I thought it was "community-based reality." I wish I came up with that.

Very well said! I'll give you credit even if you didn't formulate it.
