Iraqi Soccer Team....Already Losers

Now I cannot cheer for the Iraqi Soccer Team...not for what they said about the President.....but because they claim that the insurgents are not "terrorists" and they would join them in the fight against our troops if they were not in Athens.

"To a man, members of the Iraqi Olympic delegation say they are glad that former Olympic committee head Uday Hussein, who was responsible for the serial torture of Iraqi athletes and was killed four months after the U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq in March 2003, is no longer in power.

Here it comes...the ever present "but...."

But they also find it offensive that Bush is using their team for his own gain when they do not support his administration's actions in Iraq. "My problems are not with the American people," says Iraqi soccer coach Adnan Hamad. "They are with what America has done in Iraq: destroy everything. The American army has killed so many people in Iraq. What is freedom when I go to the [national] stadium and there are shootings on the road?"

Can you say, "ungrateful"????

What a shame. I say, let's put these guys on the firing end of a AK47 in the hands of a United States Marine in Fallujah. ....but I digress.
