82. "Staying in Iraq: American thinking."
Ive at least find the 2K bug, the USA at whole went back to the beginning of the 20th century. Its amazing to see some progressives using colonialist speech. Do Americans know that time of empire is over? It simply doesnt work anymore. Even the powerful and merciless China has not succeeded in absorbing the minuscule Tibet (also to protect people from religion), and this after 40 years. Yes of course they control the country but they have not removed the aspiration to freedom from its inhabitants.

But be happy, you will stay in Iraq, at least for a time. At the end US will have to leave, and its pseudo-reforms will disappear with the end of occupation. No one can avert the right of people to self-determination, not in the long way.

Then pursue the course and try imposing US culture to Iraq. Feed al-qaida with more hate and frustration. But never forget that each time that US buries an Iraqi, it digs a little deeper its own grave by creating more enemies. Ghosts of the past haunt you for a long time, believe me...

However I guess that it can't be help. People have right to self-determination, even if its to follow stupid path, even the USA
