Shark Blog has a fascinating interview with a leader of the Kurdish opposition to Saddam Hussein that orginally appeared in Der Spiegel. There are some real gems in the interview that directly contradict the rhetoric of the anti-war crowd. A sample:
Der Spiegel: The German and the French characterize a military attack as too risky for the civilian population. Is that not a valid concern?
Berwari: Everybody claims that they have the interests of the Iraqi people at heart, without even asking them. It’s certainly hard to do that in Iraq. But there are four million Iraqis living abroad who also have an opinion. As a rule they would say: Violence is a poor solution, but to not do something drastic at this point is no solution at all.
Someone should remind Chirac and Schroeder of that fact.
