Your post was the stupidest thing ever posted on Chiefs planet.
Especially considering that the insurgents are exactly standing up to their attempted colonizers.
You blame the victims for doing exactly what our government has asked of them for "fighting back", joining Iraqi security forces or the police. and then you say that they should do what our founding father's did and stand up to the colonial power.
Folks resisting the colonial power are the ones who killed the ones following the US orders.
Everybody knows that Bush's followers are stupid, but c'mon. Damn.
I have never seen someone miss the point this badly ever!!!
He isn't talking about the police or the people that were lining up as police recruits. He was talking about the general population of the country.
You would probably stand by when a bank was robbed and not call the police nor try to intervene because you don't want to be involved.
The general population of Iraq, if they truly want to be free, need to start standing their ground and take back what Saddam has taken from them. At this point in time they have that opportunity, if they don't do it now they may never get the opportunity again.
It sounds like what you want is to go back to English rule.
Again, you need to put the proper perspective on the events of the day and consider what the outcome of the war should be. It's one of those: You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. The general population of Iraq needs to take that drink of freedom while the opportunity is there.
