Will there be cheering in the streets of Baghdad?

When the US troops/tanks roll through the streets?

Of course there will be film of people cheering in the streets.

I have not seen one person post that Saddam was popular.


It will be played on a continuous loop on FOX news? channel.

A 23 year old American girl was killed by a tank yesterday.

And you ask me if the Iraqis will cheer when they see tanks.

I think they will. They will wave an American flag and be happy that their sons die in war.

Hip Hop,

That was a horrible incident yesterday - but it wasn't a tank, it was a bulldozer trying to demolish a house of a suspected terrorist.

She decided to give her life defending a building - that was her choice. It seemed an innapropriate use for her life though. An absolutely awful thing to happen.

Politically, I side with Isreal, but I am in no way condoning this kind of action.

I do not think this will solve any problems - just like american protesters riding Isreali buses to keep Palestinians from blowing them up wouldn't solve any problems.

Will there be cheering in Baghdad? Heavens, no. Who's going to be left to cheer after the place has been bombed to bits?? If there's anyone left in that unfortunate city it will only be ghosts. This is going to be the most absolutely godawful thing ever.

Ok, it was a bulldozer. Does that make any difference? Listen, I really donīt mean to get personal, it is not about you, I respect you personally. I just canīt understand a kind of question like "Will there be cheering...".

I doubt she decided to give her life defending a building. Sure, there is a risk she must have been aware of. I admire and respect persons like her. This wonderful youth, 23 years old, with so much heart and soul and idealism, putting her life into Gods hands, so to say... throwing it away for her belief...

Why let the facts get in the way of a good post?

The point is, that if they are truly an oppressed people, will they be happy when they are liberated?

There will also be tears at the loss of life.

Yes... It was meant to be a simple question. How will the Iraqi people react to the overthrow of Saddam/the destruction of his army/the occupation of Iraq.

I say Yes - also giving that there will be some grief for those who do not surrender and a caught up in the serious fighting.

We will see what liberation means.

The point is, does the majority of Iraqis have the great, democratic education to know what oppression is?

I thought you know about education. See it from an average Iraqis eyes, not from yours, if you want to know an answer to the question if Iraqis will be cheering.

Why not let facts get "in the way" of a post. "In the way", again remembering me of a bulldozer.

Anyway, thanks for your prayer about forgiveness. Thats a good post, in my humble opinion.

We will not know it beforehand, I guess.

This is sickly twisted logic. Next time a police officer gets killed in the line of duty, lets just remember that he made the choice to put himself in harm's way, right?

The only choice made that meant someone's life or death was the murderous bulldozer driver who deliberately ran her over. He made the decision to keep driving. And from the news accounts I've seen, they were just levelling houses at will, not only 'houses where suspected terrorists lived'.

Talk about a murderous regime.

I'm sure those mothers whose babies die in the rubble will be just itchin' to kiss American ass in Baghdad.

If you lost a member of your family to the almighty MOAB, I hardly think you'd be throwing a party. Yes, they hate Saddam, but they love their kids more than they hate him. I guarantee you that, or they wouldn't be mothers, lovers, brothers, sisters.

I guess it is a good thing that MOAB isn;t for use on troops then isn't it.

Peace

I believe you're smart enough to know what I meant.

You've got kids. If they were collateral damage, would you be going out to cheer the foreign forces? Somehow I doubt it. In fact, I'd be horrified to hear any parent say that.
