It is impossible to accurately generalize, but it seems that for the most part America is trying to accomplish something positive with good intention. Being cynical by default is not being open minded.




Not cynical....realistic. The US has much to gain over there, and its alot of money to go liberate people on good intentions alone, think about it. Don't forget that bush himself laughs at the WMD claim, so self defense wasn't a viable reason.

Alex: "Depends doesn't it. If you'd had your wife and kids slaughtered in an american bombing you might be thinking differently. "

i might. i'd probably harbor some resentment

That qualifies as one of the most disingenous statements that I have ever heard.

the islamic fundamentalists wish to set up the sort of government that exists in iran. they want to set up an absolute theocracy with a muslim cleric as caliph, as is called for by their faith. islamic fundamentalists, by the very definition of the word, cannot be happy with anything less than government as prescribed by the koran.
Bingo! This is why civil war will prevail. There are three main factions; of which at least two of the groups (if not all) will be unhappy with most any government.

I have oft-repeated "Which Iraqi people?" when it was spoken of a government of and by the "Iraqi people".

The proof is in the pudding.
