i agree with the evil people bit, but i dont think theres enough people to stop them, most people seem to think someone else will stop them, i dont deny saddam wasn't the best person in the world, and with all the re-building going on iraq will be more prosperous, as a lot of it is contracted to american companies that know what theyr doing, its not a slap dash job. it will get better, but as the resistance is eroded by american military superiority it will get more desperate, so i think it will get worse first. i dont think its a conspiracy, but i do believe it is neccessary to always question the motives of the most powerful people (i guess that is kinda paranoid!).. i think we`ve exhausted the argument now tho, it is down to what we as individuals choose to believe, i dont suppose either of us are 100% right or wrong

Well, you can call me ignorant, and I can call you paranoid, but it just seems like our difference lies in who and what we each choose to believe. I believe that there are evil, opportunistic people in every walk of life. However, I also believe that the basic good in people will win out. I don't believe that this is a huge conspiracy by businessmen to americanize the middle east. I don`t believe the American public and the world public would let something like that happen. Moreover, I don`t think it *could* happen. Over 70% of the people of Iraq, in a recent poll, said that they are more prosperous now than they were under Saddam. That`s a good thing. They are voting. That`s a good thing. And it can only get better. Bush didn`t declare victory, he declared the end of military operations against Saddam`s government.
