A recent photograph of George W. Bush I saw in the New York Times showed the "President" with the look of bewilderment. The story below the picture stated he was dumbfounded by the lack of appreciation Iraqis have shown his administration. He just can't understand it. Well, I thought I would take a few moments to try to help our "president" understand why the average Iraqi holds him in contempt. Moreso than any other politician (with the possibile exception of the PNAC(Project For A New American Century) gang (Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfelf,Perle etc) George W. Bush was the first to convince the country to go to war against a nation that had done absolutely nothing to the United States. Iraqis might be a little upset about that. Bush ordered the total distruction of Iraqi infrascructure and then denied Iraqis to play any role in rebuilding their own country. Iraq is a nation with large numbers of architects who could have done this task. Dear Mr. "President" can you see how Iraqi's may be a little bit ticked off by this action? Maybe it could have something to do with the fact that over 10,000 Iraqis attended a Hezbollah rally in Iraq. Instead of letting Iraqis rebuild their nation after you destroyed it Mr. "President" you decided to give the task of rebuilding to your old crony Dick Cheney's former company Halliburton, which has been accused on more than one occasion of overcharging for it's services. During the US invasion museums were raided and priceless art was stolen. Do you think the people of the US would be just a little bit peeved if a foreign nation had stolen our valuable art? I think they would. Many Iraqis feel that conditions in Iraq were actually better when Saddam Heussein was in power. By the way Mr. "President" because of your actions 110 Iraqis die every day and the country has deteriorated into civil war. I think that upsets many Iraqis Mr. "President" I hope that you understand a little better now. The Iraqis are not "ingrates" Mr. "President". They are human beings with feelings about "their" country in the same way that we have feelings about ours.
