How's about WE abandon hate?

“Working Together Works for Iraqi Soccer Team”?
“Soccer Helps Mend a Nation”?
“Surprising Iraq Olympic team unites, inspires”?
“Team abandons hate to fight for improbable medal”?

What is this drivel about the Iraqi soccer team winning in the Olympics?
Are we supposed to feel better about killing their children and bombing their country just because they’ve played well at a sport? Is it just me that finds it a bit patronizing?
