Arnett and his ilk seem to want that to be true. They want the United States to emerge from Iraq beaten and humbled. Of course, that ignores the fact that the media celebrates the concept of freedom of the press – a concept that does not exist in the Arab world.
My reaction: f*ck ’em. Let him see the wonderful press freedom of Iraq firsthand. Leave him in Baghdad where he can remain as a stooge of the Iraqi state.
