They're not stupid. After the 1991 Iraq war, the allies suggested the Shia majority started an uprising, so they did, the allies did not help, and
over 100,000 of them died. They stopped trusting us.
I have wondered about the stupidity of dismantling an army and police at once. Police first maybe with a surrendered army at our bequest applying the
'local touch.' But that would involve respecting Arabs, something I think Rumsfeld did not.
