Reader comment on item: Is an Iraqi Strongman Emerging?
in response to reader comment: Iraqi Situation

Submitted by Haider Naqvi (Thailand), Apr 9, 2006 at 03:39

Iraq was a country where a mad dictator ruled and during his regime he managed to suppress innocent civilians in North and south , by using chemical weapons and then he decided to occupy his neighbouring states that is the time when American forces went for the help of their middle eastern allies and forced Saddam Hussein to retreat but during the first Gulf war they did not do the complete job Saddam madness increased with time and he became a nuisance for all, I need not tell all this detail if American forces would have done their job at that time .Strong man in Iraq is no doubt Ayotullah Sistani who is a great leader and admired by Shias and Sunnis both infact he is the power who is controlling Shias not to retaliate and by this he is winning the hearts of liberal sunnis, no community of God can go for suicide attacks unless their brains are occupied by the satin and the preachers who preach hatred of such a level are the worst human being and they should be liable for strict punishment. A gigantic figure like Ayotullah Sistani can only save Iraq from a situation like Rwanda and I wish American forces should try to apprehend brains behind suicide attacks on Mosques and thats the only way that we can save Iraq from a possible civil war.
