we owe you nothing:

Says the President in tonight's 60 Minutes interview: "Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude." It's a trope you'll find on the right very frequently. In 2004, Fred Barnes visited the Green Zone and found the war was going swimmingly, except for the attitude of the bloody wogs. "Like the French, (the Iraqis) may never forgive America for having liberated them. ... For success to be achieved, they need to buy into the program fully--democracy, free markets, rule of law, property rights, political compromise, and patience. They need an attitude adjustment." What ingrates!
