I don't believe that the Iraqis will give this up easily.
Surely by now they can see that if they lose this fight, the sort of people who are blowing them up with car bombs today will be the ones in control
of the government tomorrow.
The first time we went over there to take on Saddam, we promised assistance to those who rebelled against his oppressive regime and helped us. When
we backed off, we left these men stranded to choose between facing retaliation or leaving their homeland.
I believe that the memory of this circumstance and fear of repetition led some Iraqis to be conflicted about what to do in the current situation....at
first. Perhaps now that they have tasted democracy and begun to form their own government and military they can see a light at the end of the
tunnel....a promise of hope for a better future.
I doubt that the spirit of freedom that has begun to bloom in the hearts of these people will be easily suppressed by these terrorist tactics.
