The Conflict of the 21st Century

Ralph Peters has an excellent column in today's NY Post regarding the state of affairs in Iraq and what he believes is the "conflict of the 21st century".

Progress has been made in Iraq, but the US media will not broadcast any positive developments from that country. They wish to see the elections on Iraq fail so it will reflect badly on George Bush. The fate of the people of Iraq comes second to their desire to push their agenda ahead in this country.

The elections on Sunday will most likely see violence, but they will also see millions of Iraqis willing to risk their lives to vote, risking their lives for the freedom that the President spoke of in his inauguration speech. The freedom that so many who have iot seem unable to appreciate or understand, and that millions of oppressed around the world yearn for everyday.
