Iraqis cheer “god’s vengence”

Reuters reports that Iraqis cheered the loss of Columbia, calling it “God’s vengence.”
“God wants to show that his might is greater than the Americans. They have encroached on our country. God is avenging us,” said government employee Abdul Jabbar al-Quraishi.
I really don’t have anything to add to this, other than that it’s unfortunate that the state of affairs has led people to say such things. However, al-Quraishi is a government employee, so consider the source. At least my friends among the Kurds aren’t celebrating. I’m sure America has their sympathy.
