    Hi MSH, Sam, All:

    Excuse me for butting in on this bit of conversation between Sam and MSH
    about the war in Iraq.

    Not to me it isn't, and not for a 48-year-old engineer from Oshawa,
    Ontario named John Al-hassani. He is quoted in the "Ottawa Sun" as

    "I came to this country from Iraq. I have family there. I talk to them all
    the time. Look at these fools (referring to street protesters at Bush's
    recent visit). They have no idea. They are idiots. The are simple babies.
    The majority of Iraqis are glad Bush liberated them from Saddam Hussein.
    But you don't see that on TV, only the terrorist gangsters blowing people
    up . . . These people have never suffered . . . They make me sick . . . If
    Canada was a terrible dictatorship like Iraq was under Saddam, would these
    people tell Bust "No, no, don't invade, we don't want you to give us

    This is an immoral war? Not on any moral basis I can accept.
