I am an Iraqi man now living in Sweden. I fled my country in 2006. I am a witness to what happened in Iraq when George Bush and Tony Blair invaded my country in the name of bringing Democracy. I read about Archbishop Tutu’s opinion in the Huffington Post on September 2nd regarding what happened in Iraq and how you feel George Bush and Tony Blair should be brought to trial.
As a witness to what happened to my country, what Bush and Blair brought to Iraq had nothing to do with whether I and other Iraqi people wanted Democracy—we DID—but not brought to our country with force, with killing, with such destruction. We would have developed a democratic government all on our own if we were allowed the time and left alone.
I believe that Democracy grows from the ground up and cannot be imposed on a nation from outside forces, as what happened in Iraq. I consider that my country was destroyed in the name of Democracy.
Please accept my best regards and GOD bless you and for your work to bring about global peace.
