Iraqi President sends letter of thanks to Tony Blair, British people...

In a heartfelt letter published in The Sun, newly elected Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, a Kurd, expresses his gratitude to PM Blair and the citizens of Great Britain for their help in ridding his nation of Saddam, allowing the nation to renew its freedom after forty years of war. President Talabani called the Baghdad butcher "in the view of those who opposed him, Iraq's most dangerous WMD".

The letter should be read in full, but here is an excerpt:

"Instead of continually focusing on the negative, the British, who will soon commemorate the 60th anniversary of VE day, should know that in the eyes of the
majority of Iraqis, it was you who brought us our own victory day.

Britain should be proud that the liberation of Iraq has in our eyes been one of your finest hours.

History will judge Prime Minister Blair as a champion against tyranny. Of that I have no doubt.

We are not reticent about expressing our great thanks to the British people and paying homage to tragic British losses."

I sincerely hope that voters in the UK strongly consider these words when they go to the polls next Thursday.
