nah.. not yet.. it could though.

If Iraq doesn't flourish in the next few years things'll be bad. People will be pissed off and bitter and they'll be looking for someone to blame. Children orphaned by American bombs will be vulnerable to extremist militant organizations. This is why war isn't the answer.. The key is synergy.. war could fit in there, but they better get their asses moving on the rest of it. The arabs need help.

You really cant say yet. But in the long run, do I think it will? No. IF free elections are held in Iraq, ACTUAL free elections, the government is going to be an islamic extremist government, like in Iran.

I dont know what will happen then. I dont see how Bush can stand for it, but I dont see how they can rig elections either. Its all up in the air...

A "democratic" government in Iraq will love the U.S.? I highly doubt this. Turkey isnt exactly our greatest friend, and they're the only Democracy remotely near the Middle East, discounting Israel for obvious reasons...

this is not a yes and no question, IMO..... It depends on how far back you want to go.. Like if Bush had kept just talking a bunch of shit about Saddam and his pals, our "security" could possibly be at risk - if Bush and friends had just not mentioned Saddam at all and never messed with him one bit, I don't think there would be a security problem at all (well not from Saddam anyway)

But of course... I haven't really researched these things nearly enough to have any kind of gounded answer :wink:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Turkey isnt exactly our greatest friend

They're close enough. That's why they've got away with having one of the most nightmarish human rights records on earth. Not to mention brutally invading and occupying Northern Cyprus for the last 27 years with not a peep from the US.

The problem is 90% of the Turkish population didn't agree with the US invading Iraq, so it's hard for the government to appear too subservient to Bush.
