TEMPUS FUGIT :

'We are asking God for US to attack Saddam' (Daily Telegraph, 16/08/2002)
[D]angers aside, people in Shoresh, all Kurds, appear unanimous in hoping that, the obvious risk aside, the current situation does not last much longer. Farouk, 20, said: "We are asking God for America to attack Saddam. All of us will stand against Saddam."

Seems like only a week ago the accepted wisdom was that the Kurds were blissfully happily with Saddam and opposed a U.S. attack, or maybe that was only in the NY Times. Posted by Orrin Judd at August 16, 2002 12:51 PM
