its like stopping a good movie right at the good part.
this is the time that all the stuff that all of us have called for will go down.
true, some of us may die, or may not live to see it, but isnt this right here what its all about?
if the us loses this war, or is forced into a ceasefire, iraq becomes a power player in that region again. the euro continues its upward trend. the dollar loses value. americans get pissed with the loss of US life in this war. the bush administration goes. we go into deep recession wiht the devalue of the dollar as the standard of purchase in the world. people get more upset..and so on..and so on..and so on...
im just hoping the iraqi's can withstand shock and awe. thats an attempt to destroy their morale. if they can survive that, everything else should fall into place. iraq's forces inside of bahgdad are capable of causing significant enough american casualties. as well as several other force multipliers, like the militia groups..the US is going into hostile territory. this wont be fighting in open areas like in kuwait. saddaam wasnt stupid enough to send his elite forces into that type of situation. air superiority means nothing in a war like this.
