Hello Sarmad…this is your friend Rana….how are you? I read through your site, and
i really want to know if u believe in every word you're saying? Isn't there another side you're not disposing? Honestly? I will wait for your reply!
Now I will ask you to put this message on your site, it is for those who cares and especially for those who answered maha's brief thoughts…..
First I like to fix an information Sarmad gave wrong un intentionally, we were six friends at collage, 3 girls and 3 boys, both girls are very dear to me but Maha being here in Baghdad (not in Germany as some thought!) is very close to me so you can guess that we have the same point of view regarding the occupation of Iraq!, which is refusal and have nothing to do with racism or terrorism, nevertheless u saw only that which is so typical of you adopting the American way of thinking !!!!:
Assumptions, building theories and even take actions based on those assumptions!
But here I thank those of you who have good intentions for the Iraqi people and I don't blame those people and never hate them cause they are blinded by their government's lies, am not going to talk of theories as your rulers do! I will only talk of facts:
You judged us as racists and terrorists because we don't support the American occupation of Iraq! Tell me, what should I support? The blood shed in Iraq? All you care about is the several hundreds of Americans died in the past events! Forgetting thousands of Iraqi people killed by the Americans! And it is like this:
We, Iraqi people in a country so far away from you, we have a tyrant as a ruler, but!!!! Who helped him to become a ruler? Who kept him ruler in 1991 when Baghdad was about to fall for Shwarskuf so easily but for the orders came from Washington!!! You could have spared us the mass graves !!!!! And who was behind the sanction which was not against Saddam as much as against the people of Iraq??? Even after Iraq destroyed it's weapons, who was against every decision which could improve the simple people's lives, with it's (Vito)???????? Do you know that the sanction killed 1.5 million Iraqi child ???????? ( based on UN reports) who attacked our cities several times during the 90's without UN approval and terrorized my people for the mass destruction weapons lies????????? Who used prohibited weapons on us to suffer it's destruction effects for years and years to come so they can test those new weapons as if we were mice??????
We hated Saddam; we were waiting the day when he is no more there and we're free!!! , at the same time we hated the way U.S. dealt with us. So we could never accept the fact that U.S. is a real friend, concerned and helpful!!!!.
What U.S. did to us is invasion, it's troops came all the long way to secure interests of the greatest nation on earth!!!!!!!!! And that must be done properly!!!!! Who are we Iraqis to protest????!!! We are dealing with the Americans!!!, and they are the most clever!!! The mot powerful, and the most virtuous, so all we have to do is submitting to them by erasing our past, our culture, our religion, our morals and accept whatever they bestow on us!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We did have a tyrant, still it's our business, why should U.S. interfere against UN will if not because of major interests???????, before the war they said it was because of mass destruction weapons!!!! Well, they couldn't find any!!!!, and they said it was because of the connections between Saddam and al Qa'eda but they couldn't find any Prove of such relation??!!that war was based on nothing but the American arrogance
and freeing Iraq is just something that came later to make the picture look better!!!!!!!!! Did America liberate us??????? Is it good to substitute a tyrant by an occupier ???? a foreigner???? An alien?????????would u accept that for your country ???? Do you buy their talk of leaving Iraq???Even if the troops leave, U.S. will take care of every thing in Iraq through other channels, real occupation is not the troops occupation!!!! So we are face to face with the fact that Iraq lost the independence which we value more than any of you could understand , we are peaceful people but we are proud people, we have culture of our own and it is so old , so our roots are so strong….. sorry, we can not submit easily!!!!!! U.S. admitted that being in Iraq is not as they thought it would be!!!! Most Iraqis are against existence of U.S. in Iraq ( not troops existance only) opposite to what you think that they are welcomed!!!!!and that does not make us terrorist, in fact Iraq before the so-called liberation did not have terrorism !!! the (liberation) brought it as a bonus!!!!!!
After reading your comments, I know I must assure you that being here in Iraq is different than whatever you could imagine!!! It is the real thing , as for you, I think you are all under some sort of illusion …. You believe what you are allowed to see on your tv, and we believe what we see in our home clear cut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
