Happy Iraqi pilgrims

Yahoo:

"Joyful Iraqi pilgrims arriving in Saudi Arabia on Sunday said they would thank God for ending the rule of Saddam Hussein in prayers during haj pilgrimage but other Arabs were thinking of the U.S. occupation.

...

" 'I and many people are thankful toward the United States because they were able to release us and we will definitely never forget. I don't think any Muslim can forget this,' he said, standing by Kurdish and Iraqi flags beside the Iraqi pilgrims."

Unhappy Dean

Yahoo:

"Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean said Sunday that the standard of living for Iraqis is a 'whole lot worse' since Saddam Hussein's removal from power in last year's American-led invasion."

Well, Howard, at least they are living. Other reports suggestthey are living much better than they did before. Howard gives no source for his pessimistic assessment.
