Brent Rassmussen posts this important statement of unity and asks others to follow:
I’d like to ask a favor: Regardless of one’s political inclination, irrespective of your confidence in the electoral process employed, or the decision to invade and occupy Iraq, no matter what the outcome, let us all stand united in our admiration for those courageous Iraqi’s who will brave gunfire, RPGs, bombs, and reprisal, to determine their own fate? For they choose to do so in bold defiance of promised violence and certain intimidation
This isn’t about the United States any more, and this certainly isn’t about President Bush. One can argue that the Iraq War was a bad idea, unjust, etc. However, this isn’t about the war, this is about the future of the Iraqi people. They have a chance to choose their own fate now, and everyone who respects human rights and democracy should — indeed must — stand with them against those who would drag them into tyranny, despair, and hopelessness once again.
