The US and Britain are calling this war a liberation of Iraq. That sets the expectation that the Iraqis will welcome us, as Italy welcomed American troops as they swept northward from Sicily.

Frankly I don’t suspect that will happen. The Iraqi culture is Arab culture, i.e. it is in psychosis. I expect that most Iraqis, being Arab, will hate America. It won’t look like a liberation but an occupation.

Nothing is wrong with an occupation in this situation. Except for when the British and American public are told to expect a liberation. Then a successful occupation will appear to be a failed liberation–and a failed war.
