Be Careful What You Wish For

I was reading the Daily Star this evening and came across an article by Michael Young. He makes some very good observations about those who take joy in America's struggles in Iraq. Here are a couple quotes from the article.
"Some might want to consider that applauding American setbacks is tantamount to wishing Iraq the very worst."
"There is no withdrawal option in Iraq today that would truly benefit the Iraqis. Even the most ardent foes of America must recognize, if Iraqi interests rather than Washington's humiliation top their agenda, that it must succeed in its endeavors."
Not all people who were against the war to free Iraq from Saddam Hussein's grip, would like to see America fail at Iraq's expense. But there are a few out there who would make that trade and they should be ashamed of themselves for it. No matter how much one hates George W. Bush, they should put their twisted hopes and dreams aside and hope for America's success in Iraq for the benefit of all Iraqis.
