Look around you right now. Count the people in your home; your children, siblings, parents, pets, whom ever happen to be at your home at any given time. Add your neighbors on either side of where you are. Now imagine that you come home to find them all dead because a car bomb exploded in front of your home. How would you feel?
Now imagine that the only reason that someone was able to drive that car bomb up to your home and obliterate your family in the blink of an eye, is because some Governor from another state thought your mayor was a bastard, so they sent their National Guard in to depose of your mayor. Imagine that in the process they also fired all the police and let everyone out of jail. How would you feel?
How would you feel towards the Governor who unleashed this horror on your family? How would you feel towards the people who supported the actions that led to the obliteration of your family? How would you feel after you lost everyone and everything that was dear to you because people in a state on the other side of the nation poked their nose into your cityâ€™s business? How would you respond? How would you feel?
Iâ€™ll tell you how you would feelâ€¦you would feel like an Iraqi. Now perhaps you will better understand how and why Iraqis respond to the PNAC invasion of their nation, no matter what that response may be. Think about it
