You Tell 'em, Salim!

My colleague, Salim Mansur, writes a weekly colummn for the Trono Sun. His most recent column is about the positive aspects of the Iraq election. Here are some excerpts:

For the third time in a year, Iraqis confounded the world as they went to the polls Dec. 15 to electing a new 275-member parliament under the constitution they voted for in October. ...

John Burns, Baghdad correspondent for the New York Times, observed Sunnis displaying "new willingness to distance themselves from the insurgency, an absence of hostility for Americans, a casual contempt for Saddam Hussein, a yearning...to find a place for themselves in the post-Hussein Iraq."

And, for me, the kicker,

The Iraqi vote also exposes the empty platitudes of our own Paul Martin and the lib-left, and the widening disconnect between Canada's sense of purpose and its increasingly inconsequential foreign policy of appeasing rogue regimes gathered at the UN.

I agree completely. Newton's law, for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. The reason the lib-left squeals so much about the US in Iraq is they know it's right. How do you know it’s right? Simple. Whenever that lib-left faction squeals, and squeals the loudest, you know you're on the right path. It really is, as simple as that
