Quote of the day 2

young girl in class in Ramadi

The literacy class for women and girls may have been cancelled, but the local would-be students wanted me to take pictures of them at their desks. So the classroom was opened and they sat in their seats for staged photos. …

They seemed to be proud that they were learning to read, and that women and girls were allowed to be schooled again now that Al Qaeda is gone.

Michael J. Totten, embedded with U.S. troops, reports some good news from Iraq:  residents of Ramadi have learned to appreciate American soldiers, and peace has prevailed in the city since the end of March.

    If only. But I suppose it’s too much for which to hope.

    Could’ve been? Might’ve been?

    We’ll never know what might have been accomplished in Iraq by an administration just as bold but much, much more realistic and strategic.
