First and foremost, if the United States was set on removing another hostile regime in the name of fighting terrorism, it should have been that of Kim
Jong-il and not Saddam. Today you see why. Not to be mistaken, Saddam did rule his country with an iron fist. However, under Saddam the citizens of
Iraq did not run around left and right blowing one another up. He effectively kept people from killing one another. A totalitarian ruler is something
that the peoples of the Middle East, Iraq in particular, have adapted themselves to over many centuries, and for a foreign power to intrude on their
land and replace this system of government with something new that they consider deviant is not a wise thing to do. The United States and her allies
are quickly realizing their miscalculations in this regard.
In Iraq, the U.S. should not have interfered. They should have let time do what it’s best at doing – resolving things. Eventually, there would
have been some sort of grassroots movement to topple the totalitarian government, most likely after Saddam was in the ground. What infuriates me the
most is that Iraq had so much potential for democracy in the future. In addition, the infrastructure was already there for the needs of the people to
be easily met. But what did the military of the United States do? They blew Iraq back to the Stone Age, expecting everything to be restored be the
Iraqis overnight. Now, sectarian violence – much of which is being instigated by the United States itself – is serving as the catalyst for an
ongoing American occupation. Now that the Iraqis see exactly what America means by “bringing democracy to the region”, they will be sure to stay
clear of this form of government in the future – assuming they can ever scrape the oil leaches off their backs that is.
I’m not sure exactly what the people controlling the United States are thinking (the government actually has very little power in comparison with
lobbyists in Washington) but I am almost certain it is taking us to a place we do not need to be. There was a time, a time not too very long ago, when
the world stood in awe of the sheer splendor of the United States – the beauty of freedom. However, connotations derived from America today consist
of greediness, bigotry, and complacency. Do we really need to ask ourselves why?
The people of the United States, and the world for that matter, are being pulled towards the path of a global war by corporations who are hell-bent on
all but enslaving the human population through whatever means available. These people do not care whether the United States wins or losses this
struggle; most of them will be making profits either way. Unless the people of the United States take their country back very soon, I can assure you,
reader, that the future will be even bleaker than the past.
