What Iraqis say when the "minders" aren't around

A remarkable account from Assyrian Christian News about a peace worker in Iraq who learns "I Was Wrong". It seems like these stories are coming more frequently - the "unminded" Iraqi expressing how he/she really feels about Saddam Hussein and the war.

From a former member of the Army to a person working with the police to taxi drivers to store owners to mothers to government officials without exception when allowed to speak freely the message was the same - `Please bring on the war. We are ready. We have suffered long enough. We may lose our lives but some of us will survive and for our children's sake please,, please end our misery." [Emphasis in original]

Hold tight. We're coming.
