Iraq reports we are being defeated.
Iraq attacks its neighbors after cal to "Jihad" doesn't work.
Iraq begins to kick out journalists, especially those who can help them like Al-Jeezera.
Today the final straw to break his back, An Iraqi Cleric has issued a Fatah for all citizens to put down their weapons and stop fighting the Coalition. Even Saddam can't countermand a Clerics order for a Fatah.
The resistance is over for the regulars who are melting back into society and only the most dedicated who have their lives to lose regardless of outcome remain.
War over in two weeks tops.
10 years almost to the day later, Arabs with long memories explode a LNG tanker in the East River, killing 20,000.
10 years later Arabs with long memories infiltrate through the Florida Keys as Cuban refugees and plan an orchestrated machine gun attack on crowded Saturday afternoon shopping malls across America. Hundreds killed, mostly kids.
10 years later, Arabs with long memories fly a cargo DC-10 originating in Ecudaor into the Capitol building. Over a thousand killed, including over 1/3rd of Congress.
10 years later Arabs with long memories detonate a crude nuclear bomb made from long lost Soviet-era materials a mile from the Superbowl. Over 100,000 dead.
Tech, we steamrolled over the Iraqis in 1991. And the seeds of September 11th were planted and germanated.
Every action has an equal an opposite reaction. This war will not end with the last echo of the last shot in the neighborhoods of Iraq (probably Tikrit....it cracks me up that the media think it's all over once the M1's roll downtown).
No this war is really just starting.
Israel beat the shit out of the Arabs in the 60s and 70s too. What a sustained peace they've found.
