Iraqi Generals: Liberate Yourselves

Here's a piece from, ugh, National Review Online in which a former military leader from Romania urges Iraqi generals to get on the right side of humanity and posterity. And to get on with life outside a dictatorial regime.

The author's mention of Nicole Ceausescu, now dead but then dictator of Romania, reminded me, for reasons (the mechanisms of association and memory which I don't claim to understand) of Yassir Arafat's being there in Romania, not long before Ceausescu's regime fell, celebrating the longetivity of the once-Soviet-supported dictator.
