Iraqis Blames U.S. for their Violent Natures
Friday, March 10, 2006
A recent article in Al Jazeera tries to blame the violence problems in Iraq on the United States. As far as I am concerned, Iraq brought these problems on themselves by refusing to accept the United States gift of freedom.
The United States merely invaded Iraq. We did not ask Iraqis to beat each other to a pulp. We merely erased secular rule and divided the country along ancient ethnic and religious lines, bringing back the memory of hundreds of years of animosity. They could have avoided a lot of trouble if they simply would have rolled over and done everything we wanted them to do.
This should serve as a lesson to other countries. There are no other options available to you. Surrender your natural resources now and there won't be any trouble. Cross us and you will descend into a generation of chaos and fear.
The foreign policy of the United States never involved making the shell dividing the Iraqi people erupt into a movement of violence. They merely wanted to crack through that shell and scoop out the creamy marrow of oil.
