This is sad. Iraq is becoming americanized.

Why is this sad? Because there's Iraqis out there who don't vehemently hate the United States? Sounds like this fellow understands that there's a difference between criticism of a country's leaders and foreign policy and blind hatred of the same country's culture and people. Bravo for him.

I can't say I'm a fan of his music selection, but American music is among the world's best. America has given us jazz, blues, rock, pop, rap and hip hop. I like American music.

Maybe what is sad is that while saying we are targeting Saddam we have killed 1.5 million of them. And while saying we are liberating them to get their oil, we will likely kill tens of thousands more of them. And as the article indicates, they are just like us. To me, that is sad.
