As an Iraqi, I believe I have a duty to clarify that Iraqis are Muslims of different sects and races such as Sunni, Shiite, Kurdish, and so on. Despite the fact that Saddam Hussein was a dictator, Iraqis like me are beginning to feel that he still was far better for us than the current American occupying forces. Those forces, with their attitudes made Saddam look good in front of Iraqi people. Today, the future of Iraqi people is at stake? I would like to conclude my comment by asking everyone to wait and see how things would be developing on the ground. I would welcome any disagreement with my opinion, which I believe will become more common as days pass by.
