Now, to pray for peace
Thursday, April 10th, 2003
Great to take Baghdad, to see Iraqis celebrate, to see Saddam’s statues tumble, to see the Arab street awed and even, though this is trivial in comparison, to see European and American pessimists stumped. Saddam’s rout is a miracle wrought from will, courage and civilized force.
We haven’t won yet, though. We need to bring peace, democracy and rationality to Iraq to redeem the lives this cost. I hope there are more miracles to come.
