Its coming about folks. The people of Iraq have had it with the terrorsts/insurgents and want it to stop:

apnews.myway.com...

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - More than 2,000 people demonstrated Tuesday at the site of a car bombing south of Baghdad that killed 125 people, chanting "No to terrorism!"..."

Lets hope more and more Iraqi people start to get active in the fight for thier country against these animals.

What? No replies? Dissapointed this post isnt about how terrible Americans are? Wait.....Those Iraqi people WANT the insurgents to stop?!?! But but but thats against all stuff we read at Jihadunspun and Al Jazeera?!

The people are ready to start enjoying thier freedom and they wont stand for the insurgents/terrorists disrupting it any longer.

Sorry dude, the problem with your post is it says nothing bad about Bush, our Military or our country in general. Most people on ATS want to bitch not hear good news. Your post goes completely against the grain. But hey if it makes you feel better I really liked it

Thanks for getting my sarcasm. Man, maybe I should change the title to:

"USA uses laser guided bombs to kill Iraqi puppies, STUPID AMERICANS!"

I think then we would get some response.

Sadly I think you are spot on with this analysis.

Sounds like great news to me though, thanks for posting it Skipp.

Yep - great news.

How dare you post an article like that!

Those stupid Iraqis don't know what's good for them. Being blown up by freedom fighters is making them a better country. How dare anyone disagree with that notion.

It's the beginning of the end for the insurgents...


Good post...haven't seen it on the news yet..wonder why?

Lebanon and Iraq?

OMG! Will "the Bush Doctrine" turn out to have been right all along?

Stay tuned for further developments (and many posts by intellectually honest liberals eating crow).

Around 2,000 people out of 25,000,000 protested against terrorism. Not exactly a large percentage if you ask me. Far more in the U.S. protested the war and it didn't stop it. I sincerely doubt this percentage of people wishing the terrorism to stop will have a dent either.

Well it is good to see they dont like death, and its even better to see that they are against the tacitcs used

This isnt the beginiing but it wil get the ball rolling.

The Iraqis have to start somewhere don't they.

Is it impossible for you to admit that this news is better than what's happened before when they cheered the terrorists?

Another typical liberal response.

How big would the number 2,000 seem to you if they were protesting against the U.S.? You'd think it was a HUGE number then, right? No, you'd be all over that story.

I see a ripple effect taking place. Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Israel-Palestine, soon....possibly Syria and Iran. The people are starting to see it. Time will tell on freedom and democracy. Be a pessimist if you will, but you cannot deny the possibliities that this region may.....just may be .ed for major change for the better.

What's really good news is that the Iraqi people are finding their voice after 30 years of the heaviest suppression. The West (yes, I know, mainly the US) have liberated them. No doubt they are aware that in Lebanon, plain folk like them have forced another autocratic government to resign.

Now they are starting to protest the most autocratic reign of all - the reign of terror. If they can truly take back the streets, the 25 million will not be cowed by the few, and they will be ruled by their own chosen representatives.

We must all wish them well.

some of you seem to confuse protesting terrorism with protesting insurgents, they dont attack iraqis but the terrorists do, they dont kidnap or be. people, the terrorists do, as soon as america was mentioned you ruined this thread and twisted the reason of the protest to suit yourself, from what i've seen in every occupation in history with an insurgency fighting them, the people support the insurgency 100%, its ignorant to suggest otherwise, they protest anyone hurting iraqis, not insurgents who only attack our soldiers.

Insurgents don't attack Iraqi's
So does this mean that when Iraqi Sunni attack and kill Iraqi Shi' then they are not insurgents they are terrorist.

Please refer to my earlier post.

Again I say please refer to my earlier post. Thanks for making my point for me.

Well, WHAT IF IT HAAPENS TO BE THE SAME GROUP OF PEOPLE?


Now I realize, that given the situation over there, it would be logical to assume thatthere are a number of different groups acting independently, but how can you possibly difrentiate beween the two?

Your rationalizations notwithstanding:

Insurgents = terrorists



End of the discussion!

It is coming around all right, but you missed a very important part of this news:


The demonstrators also demanded that interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi step down.


No to foreign insurgents and no to the ineffective puppet regime. Now that is progress I say.
