Richard - Three Cheers

Reader comment on item: Civil War in Iraq?
in response to reader comment: Three cheers to the "resistance"

Submitted by Sidda (United States), Mar 1, 2006 at 19:06

Richard, they have always seen the "resistance fighters" for what they are. They don't care because in their worldview, the U.S. is the greater evil. They have blind hatred for the U.S. and/or the Bush administration which renders them irrational. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. They cannot even think beyond their blind hatred to what would happen to them if we were to lose the war against radical Islam. All that matters to them is the defeat of the hated U.S.
