Who wants U.S. Troops Out of Iraq?

A boy seeks shelter behind a U.S. soldier as gunshots ring out following a car bomb explosion in Baghdad. Photo by Khalid Mohammed, AP

What is this Iraqi boy about to do? Pearl Harbor a U.S. soldier from the rear? Click the photo to find out.

Also check out Arab scholar Fouad Ajami, Professor of the Middle East Studies Program, John Hopkins University and author of The Foreigner's Gift: The Americans, the Arabs, and the Iraqis in Iraq.

On the Dennis Prager Show, Ajami explained why Iraqis want the U.S. to stay; but fear saying so, publically in pollings.

"Please Occupy Us!"

Yeah, our soldiers are such monsters kids run to them for protection! Honestly, the people who dis our troops would make me ill if I let them. This is one smart kid!

I wish that Americans would respect President Bush as much as Albanians do. Even though I don't agree with everything Bush has done, or perhaps I should say "hasn't done" I still won't bash him like some people are doing. There is such a thing as loyalty, but unfortunately I guess that is an old fashioned concept for many people nowdays.

Thanks for the clever promotion of my post regarding the Iraqi child and American Soldier!

Loyalty is last years fashion, Gayle. Don't you know how uber cool it is to be know as a dissenter - why it is downright patriotic!

God, the cool-aid drinkers are in a blather over this photo.

The funniest line from the hate-filled leftistas who posted on this thread was this:

Yeah, it’s not like the “establishment” has ever doctored a photo! Or, are there some whack jobs out there who are not aware of this activity..?


The normal course of photo doctoring has the US or Israel doing harm to civilians - NOT protecting a civilian. I've yet to see a 'discovered' manipulated photo that places the US in a good light.

I went to the comments link you left, Wordsmith, and read the comments. Good grief! Some of those people are so far out they've got to be doing drugs! What other explanation is there, notwithstanding my "virus theory" of course. ;)

Honestly, it's hard to believe that there are people running around who have absolutely no brains!

Great pic my friend. Yep they want us to leave HA.

Harry Reid would be doing exactely
the same thing as the boy. Only he would push the soldier into the bullets path and take the money out of his pocket!

Gotta wonder if W's trip to Albania and pushing for Kosovo's independence was intended to be a sharp stick in Putin's eye!

Trekmedic: It's no accident that President Bush went down nearly the entire length of what was once the Iron Curtain:

Czech Republic
Germany
Poland
Albania
Bulgaria

that along with Italy. And at every step he found people wanting closer ties with the United States.

Putin appears to have gotten the message.

I agree 100% with the professors statements about the real Iraqi opinion based on my time there and have said as much many times as well.
