You have Sunni-led insurgents/freedomfighters, Sh'ia-led insurgents/freedomfighters, you have the foreign terrorists/freedomfighters that just flood into Iraq to fight the Coalition, you have AQ and the actual terrorists..
All doing their part to give the Coalition hell and all for their own reasons and cause, not all of them are as bad as you think.
LOL LOL LOL, PROVE, IT.
THen you should also respect all the people of al Fallujah, who fought bravely against the illegal occupation.
but the majority are in it for the profit, and being recruited from the lower class, there uneducated and easily fooled.
You pulled out of Somalia after 18 men died. You can thank tv for that.

Im not an expert on the middle east or anything, but the general idea I get is that there are tons of minorities, all of which constantly struggle to have things their way. It seems to have happened throughout history in the middle east. Everyone fights for the water, and consequently, no-one gets anywhere. Has anyone ever thought of what the Middle East could be if they were to simply grow up, put aside all of their differences, and work as a unit to accomplish a bigger goal? They could become a true power in the world and actually become a large threat to the coalition. Instead, the only thing they (insurgents, terrorists, etc.) have going for them is fear-encitement and the pathetic patience level of the US.

Have you ever wondered what might happen if the insurgents and various "freedom fighters" (lol, I always find that name rather ironic in this situation) decided to give the US a chance to correct its mistakes? Yes, we shouldnt have even gone into Iraq in the first place, but America is commited to cleaning up its mess. Just how would America leaving and Iraq being plunged into civil war help anybody? It would make it even worse than it is now. Heck, for all we know it could become another Somalia. Try cooperating with America, and working as a unit to accomplish a goal that will help everyone: restoring Iraq.

The "resistance" is hated almost universaly by the Iraqi people beause they do nothing but kill Iraqis and destroy thier assets. The resistance is a facist movement which will rightfully be obliterated as is the will of the IRAQI people.
That is total propaganda, no resistance especially one capable of killing over 2000 US soldiers can survive and operate without the support of a large percent of the population. the US/UK targets a lot of civilians in covert ops trying to cause civil unrest, the UK were caught in the act but people like you just denied it and made excuses for there actions.
I agree with you there are some US soldiers who are there thinking they are doing a right and just thing, but the majority are in it for the profit, and being recruited from the lower class, there uneducated and easily fooled. When your goverment makes up lies about the resistance booby trapping toys and killing civilians, its easy to make these not so smart people hate the resistance.

I second that, the resistance is the Iraqi people, 80% of Iraqi people want America to get out now or very soon; and they help the galant freedom fighters resist the Imperialist-Zionist Americans..
Facism is simply a people represented by a government who feel they are superior and that they should rule over another people..for example the zionist-racist aphartied state or Americas agenda in Iraq to 'keep' Iraq as a permanent client state where America de-facto controls everything and the Iraqis are economically/politically enslaved as American racist billionars get richer off Iraqs natural resources.
Long live Juba! Keep up the good work Juba! non-racist, non-zionist freedom loving people everywhere wish you success in your important liberation movement against the racists.
