I am by no means one of the deeper thinkers on this board. Nor am I as well informed as some.
But I have been wondering these last few weeks. People have been refering to many Iraqi's smiling as the coalition forces come to them. They have used this as further proof that what we are doing is right and that the population there is eager to welcome us in thanks for freeing them.
But I have been wondering to myself. How would I react to an invading force that has already attacked us in the past and is so obviously more powerfull then my own country? I mean, by experiance, I know that they are gonna win in the end and I have nothing to gain but my possible death for interfearing.
Would I react in anger or would I be smiling my best knowing that these people who are surrounding me with tanks and guns are gonna be deciding my future for me?
The other thing I have been thinking about is this. Will Saddam win this fight against America?
I know he will most likely die at the end of this(and may already be dead), but will he win in the end?
So far, all the weapons of mass destruction we have accused him of having as an excuse to attack, have not been found. Just as Saddam said.
Will this end with America losing more in the end then a war with Iraq? Will people overlook the fact that the reason we went to war wasn't realized in the end? Or will everyone really begin to be anti American giving Saddam the final victory?
Just curious what others think on this
