Just shows why an occupation like this is impossible to carry out effectively. We're looking at a large-scale rebellion of the Iraqi people -
complete with tactics similar to those the forefathers of our (if you're American) nation used. I wasn't sure in the past, but now, after reading
reports and whatnot, there is almost no doubt in my mind that there is nothing short of a massive revolt. Not as unified as the American Revolution,
as they were never really a unified people anyway (different sects that should have never been part of the same country - thanks, Britain).
We defeated Saddam Hussein, we installed a new government. Our mission was accomplished. Now that the people have resorted to violence in an attempt
to gain some sovereignty, it's time to get out and go home. It was an idiotic move to invade Iraq in the first place, and every second we spend
there is just more waste of money, morality, and human life.
