    Do you think that the U.S. has the right to invade another country to change the structure of it's government?

    Should the U.S. be involved in the establishment of a new government in Iraq if Iraqi's don't want them to be?

    Can anyone explain for me what the issues are between the Shiites and Kurds?

    Did anyone else notice that electricity in Iraq was restored to the oil fields first before it was to the citizens in the cities?

    Should we be concerned about the fact that Iraqi children with physical ailments that have nothing to do with war injuries are being flown to the U.S. to receive specialized and expensive medical treatment when there are American children who might not get the same treatment because their families don't have affordable health benefits?

    Millions of U.S. dollars have been found by the military hidden in various places in Iraq. Who does it belong to, the U.S. or the Iraqi citizens to help rebuild their infrastructure? Where do you think this money will end up?

    Does Israel stand to gain anything from the U.S. military aggression in the Middle East?

    Now, suddenly after 40 years of leading the Palenstinians, it appears that Arafat is now being challenged. Isn't the timing sort of ironic that it's coinciding with what's happening in Iraq?

    How do you think this situation will ultimately turn out not only in Iraq, but in the Middle East?

    what are your opinions on these things?

    btw, why are you surprised that the electricity to the oil fields were restored first. :D in the beginning of this invasion, the US kept talking about "oil for food". but you know, this has nothing to do with oil. ;) ;)

    Monster,

    Whether we agree or disagree with the actions the US has taken against and within Iraq will not stop the machine known as "colonization". This is how the US operates and has done so since we took our independence from the British. We invade a territory-restructure it economically, socially, religiously, politically-gun in one hand, bread in the other until the citizens are so fractured and dependent that any resistance eventually fizzles out or is driven underground until one day it erupts like a volcano.
    The US has all but neutralized Iran, Iraq is on the ropes, Afghanistan is starting to fall in line, Syria is just trying to stay out of our crosshairs, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are looking the other way, so I'd say in the next 5 years the US will have infiltrated every major Middle Eastern country.
    Shiites and Kurds are-if I'm not mistaken-like the Montagues and Capulets (Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet) different feuding sects/factions of the same religion. See link below--sorry for the rudimentary source.......

    Those millions that were found in Iraq will wind up in an off-shore, Cayman Island, account while John Q. Public pays for the destruction and then restoration of Iraq.
    Israel stands to gain an even stronger ally (the US) with an even longer reach. I fully expect the map to be redrawn once Arafat is out of the picture and it's time to endorse and construct a "Palestinian State". The Jews will keep Israel (their Judeah and Sumaria as it was referred to in the Bible) and the Palestinians will be "bussed" 70's style to the new Muslim milkshake known as Iraq-istan.
