So, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani just finished visiting France, as he tried to heal the wounds in their relationship, caused by France's refusal to support freedom in the region. He urged them to look at Iraq with a fresh eye, and maybe we'll return the favor. At the end of his speech, he said: "Without this war, perhaps you wouldn't see me here as a president, but as a refugee."
That's some pretty tough language in diplospeak. Good for him.
