: Zeyad has a pretty remarkable post on HealingIraq:
I truly hope that living under 50 years of tyranny hasn’t turned us all into potential tyrants. I worry constantly when I see some of the newly appointed Iraqi officials and controversial politico-religious figures just too eager to rule and assume power in the country. They are desperately trying to push it and speed up things for themselves. I see Saddam’s face under the masks they’re wearing. They are tyrants in disguise. I would rather have President Bremer (Allah preserve him) ruling us than any of them. I wonder if we EVER have someone qualified yet enough to be leading us.
The solution to this will be a strong constitution and strong structure with strong backing and that will take time and patience to build. We’re talking to you, U.N. and Europe: time and patience.
