Everyone continually missed the point of what has transpired in Iraq. The underestimation of post war Iraq by this administration is purely the lack of understanding of FREEDOM by the Iraqi population. If they had fought at all for their freedom, post war Iraq would be a totally different picture. These people are waiting for the next terrorist regime to take hold, one that might be worse than the one we ousted. The concept they will actually participate in a free election....they cannot make that leap in their minds. That is what I am waiting to hear from the administration or from Geo Tennet or someone. They are no doubt pleased to see the US soldier coming down the street, but they must act just as excited if they see the local terrorist thug, he might be the next president of Iraq. If the population had a clue, their shear numbers could result in an overwhelming revolution. If that were the case, they didnt need the US to intervene. Why do you think the Iranian heirarchy is so nervous these days? If the Iranian movement overthrows that government, it will be much different than what is in Iraq. Why doesnt Al Jereez show how great things are in Kuwaitt? The Kuwaittis are the richest people per capita in the world, and they dont work. The government pays them from oil revenues. How much more oil does Iraq have than Kuwaitt? The Iraqis could live much better than the Kuwaittis. And, again, it is all about oil.
