Meanwhile, many of the Iranian people think the was with Iraq was necessary and want the U. S. to come liberate them, too. For example, remember Ayatollah Khomeini ? His grandson, of all people, Hossein Khomeini, gave a speach where he asked President Bush to "intervene by force" against the ruling clerics his grandfather appointed.
Khomeini also said “Mr. Bush should act like Churchill when he gathered around him the British population to fight against Hitler.”
Khomeini is even willing to have the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi lead the country.
I think what this shows is, regardless of the protests of anti-war folks in America and around the world, the people who are oppressed want to be liberated. Why should they have to live under oppression? Why should free people not want to share their freedom?
