Yesterday’s win of the Asian Cup for Iraq's national soccer team was an '"inspirational triumph for a team whose players straddle bitter and violent ethnic divides. "
After the game yesterday, team captain Younis Mahmoud called for the United States to withdraw its troops:

I want America to go out," he said. "Today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, but out. "
"I wish the American people didn’t invade Iraq and, hopefully, it will be over soon."

Now that most of evil has been done since the invasion it's a little bit too late, I think...
So many dead people for absolutely no reason, for nothing at all.

I wish I could tell Younis Mahmoud that I, and many other Americans, want the exact same thing. :'-(
