A Call For Peace

I may turn conservative after reading how conservatives are happier. I want to be happy too. I think I will post some things from a more positive angle once in a while. God forbid that I seem grumpy.

Here's some good news: Religious leaders in Iraq called for peace after all "H-E-double hockey sticks" broke loose and a Shiite Shrine was toppled. Our president, George W. Bush said, "This is a moment of choosing for the Iraqi people."

Oh yes, indeed. They will most certainly choose something.

People want to look at the bright side of danger, death and explosions though.
U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad acknowledged the grave danger facing Iraq, but said the attack on the shrine also presented the country with a "moment of opportunity."

"I think this attack has had a major impact here, getting everyone's attention that Iraq is in danger ... that they must lead and compromise with each other to bring the people of Iraq together and to save this country," he told reporters.
President Bush acknowledged that there would be lots more bloodshed in Iraq, yet he also told a handpicked audience of veterans to look at the sunny side...
"But I'm optimistic because the Iraqi people have spoken and make their intentions clear... They want their freedom. They want their country to be a democracy," Bush said.

Now I'm not quite sure which intentions he is talking about but we'll just have to trust him. Ya know?
