In 1991 I witnessed the public uprising that was aroused in most Iraqi governorates by the persecuted people. At at that time I was a witness when people spontaneously said, "no to the tyrant". The Iraqi people said no and they knew the consequence of this no. They knew with whom they confront, Saddam Hussein, but in spite of that they stormed to the streets yelling no … no … no. This now cost them their lives. This historical situation will remain in generations' memories for a long, long time. We will remember when the bare arms with no weapon shook at the tyrant's throne.
Also we can't forget when Saddam was allowed to use his Helicopters to curb the rising and kill the innocents. Many here blame the United States for not stopping him.
I'm always wondering why those who rule Iraq today try to forget this no.
They forget an important proverb from an Arabian poet historically used to respond to occupation.
if the people want life destiny must respond.
Those people who were able to say no to Saddam they will be able too to say no to new tyrants.
strong>Yes, the government must understand that Iraqi people can't be patient forever. The day will come when Iraqi people will say no again.
They can't watch daily tragedy in all of Iraq, or the sectarian fight in which governmental parties are involved and foreign influence from Saudi Arabia, Iran and Washington.
The day will come when the Iraqis will create their reality by themselves.
