Iraqi hope

Here is a refreshing sentiment coming out of Iraq. Every now and then the mainstream media manage to shift their gaze from the enticing spectacle of primitive bullies like Sadr, and we get a chance to hear from an Iraqi who is intelligent and insightful and not preaching hatred or violence. In an article about protests marking the second anniversary of Saddam's fall, we find this quote:

'Baghdad is beautiful with its people,' said Safa Adnan, 40. 'What's important now is that we rebuild the Iraqi citizen. We want a new generation that is raised well, cultured and open to the rest of the world.'
