flattop BS: Iraqi Battalion Refuses to Fight Iraqis (56* d) RE: BS: Iraqi Battalion Refuses to Fight Iraqis 11 Apr 04

Bush seem to be pressing for a multilateral force from many counrties (30?) to take over the impossible situation that they've created, Kevin. He would, of course, rather have people from other countries dying until he wins the election, wouldn't you if you were in his underwear? But what leader wants to send troops to die in such a ridiculous situation, if they don't have to?

Constructing a regime will be an intesting challenge. How would you go about doing that? When people compare the Iraq situation with Vietnam, I wonder, isn't it worst than Vietnam. In Vietnam the Americans were supporting a government that was fighting for survival. They had places to hide and rest between gun battles. They don't even have that in Iraq. They may not even have anyone as civilized as Ho Chi Minh to negotiate with and take over when they are ready to surrender. After all, Ho Chi Minh had worked as a busboy at the Paris Hilton in the 1920s. He understood western values. Will the Americans find anyone as good as him to stabalize Iraq when they leave?
