    ‘Most Iraqi People Say President Bush Is a Hero,’ Immigrant Says
    Wednesday, October 01, 2008
    By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer


    Benny Aldosakee left Iraq five months ago, after getting special immigration status through a federal law that allows some translators who worked with the United States in Iraq or Afghanistan to come to America.

    Aldosakee said that most Iraqis are grateful to President Bush and the U.S. military for removing dictator Saddam Hussein and that the many in the major media, here and abroad, are misinforming people about Iraq and the Middle East.

    Yes but they don't get to vote here either.

    Bush's biggest mistakes have been mistakes of communication not policy. While I disagree with a lot of his policies my biggest frustration was that for 8 years he has never defended himself or his policies. I like the fact that we had a president who was going to do what was right regardless of the polls, but you have to follow that up by explaining to the people of America why you did what you did. You have to actually win over their support through communication, not something GWB was ever very good at.

    I didn;t expect to get much reaction from the anti-war types.

    They hate Bush and won't understand the Iraqis not hating him too.

    BTW

    The war in Iraq is won. It is time to turn internal security over to the Iraqis.

    Time to bring our guys home as we see fit.

    Having control over the media and the information that comes out probably didn't hurt. Worked just dandy here there's even some people who still love Bush so I imagine it really worked great there.

    from this article....

    Aldosakee said before the U.S. led invasion of Iraq, he and his family were resigned to live their lives under Saddam Hussein’s rule.

    “Because we couldn’t even dream that one day in our lives that Saddam Hussein would be removed from his power,” Aldosakee, 28, told CNSNews.com. “And President Bush did it within a month.”

    Aldosakee said that fact alone has shaped the opinion of the majority of his countrymen.



    If we had left after one month I probably would have supported the war.

    Come on.One month?Things would have been in disarray would be a colossal understatement if we had left in a month's time.Nothing would have been in place in that brief time period.
