In actuality we are there to steal US taxpayer money and give it to the rich by way of contracts. We are also there to steal Saddam's wealth and secure oil contracts.Ya because we're there to steal the goats and crops of innocent herders and farmers. In actuality what they were doing is taking up arms in order to cause instability to take down a fledgling democracy and re-institute a tyranny of the minority as it was prior to the take down of the Tikriti Baathist elite. But ya keep on believing in this noble peasant warrior fantasy that you've constructed for yourself, it sounds like you'd make a good Islamist propagandist, you've already got the pro-insurgent mentality, the twoofer mentality, now all's you got to do is close the gap and blame it on the JOOS.
What if you were doing just fine under Saddam like many were? You know, sorta like the way people did really well under Clinton all the while bitching about him... you weren't one of them were you?As to what I would do if I were them I would have joined the Iraqi military and be grateful for the chance that I was given to be out from under the jack boots of one of the most oppressive regimes in the latter half of the 20th century.
Edit: Also, what would you do if the military was disbanded?
