God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Iraqi President Talebani had no kind words for Europeans in a recent interview:
Jalal Talebani, the President of Iraq, in an interview with the Austrian daily Die Presse, in response to the interviewer's question: "How would you respond to the fact that many European countries believe that the war in Iraq was a mistake," replied: "Europeans have no rights when it comes to this issue and the European criticism of Americans is positively inappropriate. Europeans have no idea what misery the Iraqi people endured. I'd like Europeans to take a trip to Iraq to visit the 400 thousand person mass graves. People could no longer put up with Saddam's regime. The people of Germany and Austria could have never been rid of dictators like Hitler without a war. That was the price that had to be paid."

One day, Europeans must grasp that 27 million Iraqis finally have freedom, democracy and human rights because of this war."
Interesting. I doubt he'll make a dent in the arrogant European psyche though; the Euros are politically nearsighted at best.
