Iraqi women tour U.S. with this quiet, stunning message: (Thanks for liberating Iraq.)

August 5th 2004
They are two Iraqi women on a tour of the American Midwest, conveying a simple but somehow stunning message. To wit: Thanks for liberating Iraq. Thanks for sending American troops. You Americans are a lovely people. ...

They are believers in democracy, believers in the current transformation of their country. As women, they feel particularly affected. Both insist that their lives, and those of most Iraqis, have improved since Saddam Hussein’s statue was toppled in Baghdad. ...

Both women insisted that most Iraqis support the American troops. “We want to say thank you to the mothers and fathers of American soldiers,” says Falih.

They are here, uttering words Americans do not often hear. And no matter how you might feel about the American military presence in Iraq, their clear sense of hope is at once surprising and affecting. FR Reprint.
