Main Question or Discussion Point

There were two interesting articles I found today:

ABC: http://abcnews.go.com/sections/wnt/World/iraq_safwan030322.html

NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/23/international/worldspecial/23SOUT.html
"We are not cowards, but what is the point?" said Ahmed Ghobashi, an Iraqi colonel from Baghdad. "I've got a rifle from World War II. What can I do against American airplanes?"

Colonel Ghobashi talked on for a while, detailing his participation in the disastrous wars begun by Mr. Hussein in Iran and Kuwait. He was a professional soldier, he said, and he did not sign up to engage in fanciful adventures. As he talked on, his tone grew bitter, until he concluded that Mr. Hussein must have a secret agenda.

"He doesn't give us enough to eat, and he doesn't pay us," the colonel said. "And then he starts this thing with the Americans and then tells us to defend the country against the invasion."

Colonel Ghobashi pursed his lips in contemplation and rendered his final opinion on Mr. Hussein.

"I believe he is an American agent," he said.
I just hope it's not long until the humanitarian aid starts flowing....

the troops already have Burger King, Subway and Baskin-Robbins for them thanks to Dick Cheney's former company.
