a good thing

two serious post in a row, sorry, it is winter.

thousands of Iraqis protests on the streets of bagdad yesterday against the security pact that Iraq is signing with the US.

there is no question that the war has been a fucking disaster, even worse than my friend joe disaster, that is saying a lot. but at times like these, you have to find something that doesn't smell in the shit pile.

the fact that the Iraqis were able to peacefully and freely demonstrate against something they didn't agree with, I think is a small step towards progress. There still might be a civil war, there is still possible of total collapse of peace, but I really hope they are headed towards something better.
