Good or Bad?

Ziad linked to the following article.
I wanted to comment on it a bit. A lot of you might think all this freedom is a good thing. Honestly, when I read this article I couldn't manage to smile about it. Do you guys remember the split up of USSR? Same old stories..... prostitution, alcohol, exceeded freedom. Let me explain....the amount of prostitution I am talking about is massive. You would find a whole town of prostitutes and cabarets. As for alcohol, you will be suprised by the different types of "Johnnie Walker : Black Label" you would find and at different prices. They would get cheaper brands of whiskey and place it in a Black Label bottle and then sell it for more.

Each country has their own laws and norms. For example, in Kuwait, sex scenes are censored, zionism is censored, public affection is forbidden, prostitution is illegal, alcohol is forbidden, there are no clubs, gambling is illegal, and not all books and movies are allowed into Kuwait. This does not mean we should call for a "regime" change. I really wish people stop paying attention to little things such as these and look at the big picture.

Yes, me and millions of other Arabs are glad Saddam is gone. Yet, we are not stupid. We all know the US and England didn't interfere for the benefit of the Iraqi people. Not for the chemical weapons either, not because Iraq posed a threat to the US, and not because of September 11th. I am sick and tired of hearing those bullshit stories. Please people, I am pleading with you, don't lose the point. We have a lot more unanswered questions. Where is Saddam and his regime? Where are the WMD? Where are the Kuwaiti POWs?

Also, I am sick and tired of religion being included in everything. From both the West and the Arabs. Stop involving religion in politics! Religion was never meant for this. Moreover, I would live to tell all the ignorant non-Arabs, not all Arabs are Muslims. Also, just like Christianity has different sects so does Islam. Islam was never supposed to be interpreted as a violent religion. The war on Iraq has nothing to do with Muslims and Christians.

Did the US murder journalists?

Robert Fisk in this article believes that the US "murdered" reuters crew and Al Jazeera crew in Baghdad as well as in Kabul. Could this be?

There is a lot of speculation on what happened that day. Some people seem to believe that the Palestenian hotel was targetted so that no one will pay attention to the airport. You see, this was the same day that the US got full control of the airport and the first plane landed there. That plane left with people aboard. Saddam, and other important officials disappeared with all their families. Could it be that a deal was made between Saddam and the US that day, and Saddam fled. The US said that they were expecting fierce battles in Baghdad....then why did they enter with just 3 tanks? Why did Iraq put it's major defense in the South and nothing in Baghdad or in the North? Also, remember when the Iraqis took over the airport...it was 3 big groups of republican guards....the US later said they used a bomb, that had never been used before, and got rid of them....there was no footage of this, and there are no signs of evidence of this. What really did happen in Baghdad the day it feel to Anglo-American hands?
