This is So predictable

Reader comment on item: Is an Iraqi Strongman Emerging?

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), May 4, 2004 at 18:58

In 1991 Saddam Claimed he was going to start the Mother of all battles. I'm sure he was shocked when we left before going into Baghdad. The plan has always been to suck us in to a war on their terms. We are Goliath, they are David. The goal of the ongoing worldwide Muslim "Struggle" against the infidels is to wrest world domination from western civilization and elevate Islam to a dominant position. They have a good chance of succeeding in the next 100 years, maybe sooner.

Our Tactics will probably go down in the Annals of Warfare: Has any other Army trained and equipped the enemy? Do you think that would have worked in Berlin or Japan? Why do we think it will work here?
