This hits the nail right on the head. With all of the talk in the media about “there are 2 more free countries at this Olympics,” here’s what the coach of the Iraqi soccer team had to say:
In summary, he says “We’re not a symbol of freedom, we’re an occupied country. That’s not freedom.”
Now, of course, he’s free to say that so someone will argue that he’s more free than he was. However, people are still being threatened, murdered, and tortured by the “government” so while it’s a small step forward in that once sense, there have been some big backward steps or none at all in most areas. Not to mention that there still is no such thing as “free speech” in the country since the government closes down the doors of any publication critical of it.
Anyways, props to the coach.
