A couple of e-mails were asking me to talk about the "Iraqi resistance."

"I don't know what to say, because I don't know who the people involved in the resistance are. To draw something from the Iraqi history: in the 1920 Revolution, which is considered by all Iraqis as a great chapter in Iraq's history, the leaders of the resistance against the British were well-known. They were people like, Muhammed Sa`id al-Habboubi, Muhsin Abu Tibikh, Ja`far Abu al-Timman, Muhammed al-Sadr, Ali al-Bazirgan, and the list goes on.

Every one of these men was a paragon of patriotism and good ethics. It was easy to make one's mind about the resistance then, knowing the people involved. Also, it was easy to admire their action. They fought with honor and they did not act like thugs and thieves."
