Quote for the Day

"Under the protective canopy of the no-fly zone actually it was also called the "you-fly-you-die zone' an embryonic free Iraq had a chance to grow. I was among those who thought and believed and argued that this example could, and should, be extended to the rest of the country; the cause became a consuming thing in my life. To describe the resulting shambles as a disappointment or a failure or even a defeat would be the weakest statement I could possibly make: it feels more like a sick, choking nightmare of betrayal from which there can be no awakening" - Christopher Hitchens on Iraq. And yet Kurdistan endures. Long may it do so.
