Iraqi-Americans urge U.S. to oust Saddam

By John Bebow / The Detroit News

DEARBORN -- In an answer to this month's worldwide war protests, some 500 Iraqi-Americans on Sunday urged one of President Bush's top military strategists to topple Saddam Hussein.

U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz assured them that American military might would come with even greater humanitarian help for people under Saddam's grip.

"When Saddam Hussein and his regime are but a memory, the United States is committed to helping the Iraqi people establish a free, prosperous and peaceful Iraq," Wolfowitz told the crowd at Dearborn's Fairlane Club.

The pledge was welcomed by members of the Iraqi Forum for Democracy, which organized the event. The group warned that failure to follow through with aid could undermine the Bush administration.

"Twelve years ago, the Iraqi people would have welcomed liberation," said Feisal Istrabadi. "The margin for error is much smaller this time."

Wolfowitz left open the possibility of a peaceful resolution. But in an interview with The Detroit News before the meeting, he predicted Iraqis would welcome U.S. troops if there was an invasion.

Anmerkung: es leben ueber 400.000 Irakis in den USA
