Sometimes it is hard to think for yourself when everyone around you seem to think in the same direction. When we talk about nation matters and all the backup against a certain enemy, things can be even harder.
I know that my opinion would upset many, but I guess when a thing has to be said, then it has to be said. I at least can benefit from the space of freedom of speech we have in Jordan.
My question is: Would it be that bad if there wasn’t any Iraqi military resistant after the American occupation?
Why don’t we stop for a moment and think how things would have been in the past couple of years in Iraq without any resistance?
The major argument military resistance advocate base their stand is their claim that the US has invaded Iraq in order to control Oil revenues and dominate the region.
How bad would it be is they actuallu took advantage of some of the Iraqi oil revenue and let the Iraqi’s benefit of the rest as well? Wouldn’t it be better than the current situation we have in Iraq where no one is benefited?
One has to understand the nature of the US in order to build a judjment. If we are going to talk about interests, one has to pay close attention to the big companies busnisses in the US. While the strong lobby of Military companies business have succeeded in pushing towards the war, I guess that other big American international companies were waiting to grab the chance and benefit from entering the Iraqi market.
Would it be bad if we have let them?
Sure they would have gained much profit, but the Iraqi people would have gained much as well.
How bad would it be to have American infrastructure to re-build the country? How bad would it be to have American construction companies, IT companies, Telecommunication, Banks, Technology, Insurance, Autmobiles, …etc
Would it be worse than what is happening in Jordan for instance? We don’t have any American occupation, and still we have the invasion of their inltinational companies.
If we adhered to a peaceful means of resistance, the Iraqi people would be having now far better lives than what they are having now on the ground.
