“Our young men and women should not be referees for an Iraqi civil war,” she said. “It is heartbreaking that President Bush continues with this policy. His policies have alienated our friends and emboldened our enemies.”
Hillary Clinton, November 6, 2007

Our “alienated friends”
November 7


In his address to a joint session of Congress, the French leader said 11 times that he and his countrymen “love” America.

“We may have differences,” Sarkozy said to thunderous applause, “but in times of difficulty, in times of hardship, one stands true to one’s friends.”

Although France was rabidly opposed to the Iraq war, Sarkozy said he gets “sad” when an American falls in combat, as if losing “a member of one’s family.”

I recommend you read the entire speech.

Iraq’a Civil War
November 7

A Muslim man had invited the American soldiers from “Chosen” Company 2-12 Cavalry to the church, where I videotaped as Muslims and Christians worked and rejoiced at the reopening of St John’s, an occasion all viewed as a sign of hope.

The Iraqis asked me to convey a message of thanks to the American people. ” Thank you, thank you,” the people were saying. One man said, “Thank you for peace.” Another man, a Muslim, said “All the people, all the people in Iraq, Muslim and Christian, is brother.” The men and women were holding bells, and for the first time in memory freedom rang over the ravaged land between two rivers.
