  6. OK, you make fun of these people here but I actually feel sorry for them.They are miserable soldiers, yes, but they are probably in the Army because they need a job, they are poor and uneducated, they don´t really know what they are doing, they don´t know why they fight and they have a fearful, tremendous enemy. And they are probably all sick and tired of this endless war. Can you imagine living there ? In hindsight, Saddam should have been left alone to rule in his secular way, and now, I guess some of these countries are to weak to resist Islamisation.Resistance has to grow from the inside like it probably does now in Iran. And you know that my opinion is that Assad should be left alone, he is the only one in the region that really fights IS. he is secular, Christians are allowed to live in his ancient country.

    • Thank you SL. While I understand the humor I found this topic insensitive. Ridicule should be for the enemy (rules for rads?). I wonder if a culture has never known freedom how will they fight for it? Leadership is more than maneuvers on the battlefield. We left too soon.

      • Now that you mention it, if I were any Iraqi soldier I’d be hard pressed to say who or what I’m fighting for. As Americans (at least up to this point) fight for American and the things ABOUT America we hold dear. These poor guys have their loyalties divided by sect, clan tribe, 500 year old grudges who knows what else. HOW does anyone bring them together in a common cause?

    • A Syrian told me that Assad is not a “bad man.” However, some of his officials are “bad men.”
      Your observations are correct, Swedish Lady. We Americans tend to view the world through our cultural norms rather than through the filters of their national and cultural beliefs – a mistake often made in our diplomatic efforts. Example: when our government sends women to negotiate with ME (male) leaders.

  7. OT:
