Rooting for the Iraqis.
“I have a confession. I have at times, as the war has unfolded, secretly wished for things to go wrong; wished for the Iraqis to be more nationalistic; to resist longer. Wished for the Arab world to rise up in rage. Wished for all the things we feared would happen. I’m not alone. A number of serious, intelligent, morally sensitive people who oppose the var have told me they had identical feelings.”
