A los progres patrios no les gusta pero… qué opinan los iraquíes sobre las tropas USA?

escrito por Luis I. Gómez 27 agosto, 2007

Hace unos días les dejaba una carta escrita por varios soldados USA recomendando la retirada de las tropas norteamericanas de Irak. Los argumentos, si bien más emocionales que pollítco-sociales, me resultaron dignos de ser tenidos en cuenta y por ello lo publiqué. Hoy les dejo con la opinión contraria de muchos iraquíes. Es el resultado de docenas de encuestas entre la población iraquí realizadas en los últimos meses: "America should finish what it started":

In the run-up to the mid-September progress report on Iraq, pundits, military commanders, presidential candidates, and seemingly every member of Congress who ever spent a few hours in the Green Zone, have weighed in on the efficacy, or not, of withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq.

Missing from the debate, however, is one of the most crucial voices: the Iraqi people.

"If they leave, it will burn like hell," says Abdul Karim Khalil Malallah who once translated for the U.S. military police, but fled the violent chaos of Baghdad with his family last summer for the safer environs of Iraqi Kurdistan.

In dozens of interviews in several cities, Iraqi Muslims and Christians, Arabs, Kurds and Assyrians — people who would argue endlessly on other points of the U.S. occupation of Iraq — are in unanimous agreement on one point: U.S troops should not withdraw from their country.

Lean, lean.
