Out of the Mouths of Babes

Hi All!

I've been experiencing brain-lock as far as writing is concerned, so please indulge me in introducing a guest poster, 12-year-old Catie. You go, girl!

Kerry Disagrees With Iraq Prime Minister

From the New York Times:

Speaking shortly after the interim government's prime minister, Ayad Allawi, gave Congress a portrayal of progress toward peace, Mr. Kerry said, "The prime minister and the president are here obviously to put their best face on the policy.

From the New York Times:

"I stand here today as the prime minister of a country emerging finally from the dark ages of violence, aggression, corruption and greed," he told the lawmakers, who interrupted his address several times with applause. "Like almost every Iraqi, I have many friends who were murdered, tortured or raped by the regime of Saddam Hussein."

These two paragraphs above talk about the Prime Minister of Iraq, Ayad Allawi, thanking President George W. Bush for the capture of Saddam Hussein. He is very happy that Saddam no longer is leader of Iraq, he is extremely grateful that there will not be so much pain and suffering amongst the Iraqi people. Many people want the Prime Minister dead because they like the way things were when Saddam was leader. Many people like the way things are now with Saddam gone, though.

John Kerry says that the speech from the Prime Minister of Iraq was just a publicity stunt and/or campaigning for President Bush. I must disagree. I feel that things for Iraqis are a lot better since Saddam Hussein was captured, and that the Prime Minister, Ayad Allawi, was not doing a publicity stunt for Bush or himself. I feel that the Prime Minister is truly grateful. Of course many different people have many different opinions, but this is mine.
