Humiliation and Rage Stalk the Arab World By NEIL MacFARQUHAR

DAMASCUS, Syria — For many Arabs, Baghdad was lost last week.
Sure, Saddam Hussein ranked up there in the pantheon of world-class tyrants, a torturer and mass murderer who slaughtered thousands of his people and waged reckless wars that beggared the rest. [more]

Ok, what is with this fixation on "humiliation and rage" in the "Arab World"? Like since when did the Arabs corner the market on humilitation or rage? Sure, the Iraqi's didn't fight a damn overall, but that's more due to who they were fighting for, than how much fight they had in them. But again, "rage"? Humiliation? Get over it. You want rage? Come to New York City. Every day is a test in absorbing some new outrage. You want humiliation? Try dealing with NYC civil servants every day. The Arabs don't know what rage or humilation are, frankly.
