Sir I am regular reader of Armed Forces Journal [ US Army Magazine]
I came across this few months ago:

What can we do? It's hard for them to sleep without mischief goaded by the hungry man's greed. It's simple: we have something that they want. It's not the other way around.

Have you ever had an chance of discussing it with some Canadians or those nice Americans who normally head for crime-free Windsor?

They are interfering with our lives and still crying foul. What do you say about that?

An honest answer to your question could not come from an Iraqi or Afghani living in the west.  I know of many Iraqis here in the US that support the invasion.  But they are not the ones fearing suicide bombers while grocery shopping or after Jummah. And they aren't the ones having American soldiers busting down their doors and carrying off their husbands and fathers on suspicion of being insurgent sympathizers.  To get a true reaction, you'd need to actually talk to the people LIVING in the War Zone.  And not those Iraqis getting wealthy and fat in there American imposed positions of power.

Angela,

That was the point of my question. Has anyone on here spoken to anyone living in Iraq or Afganistan? Because we could all sit here and argue about the pros and cons of American and British troops being there but until anyone gets a proper prospective and first hand account of what the people want then we are not going to get a definitive answer.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.

As a matter of fact, I have.

Their is one guy in my program, really nice; good christain, never goes to bar, no GF.

I talked to him about Iraq, and he was supporting the bush's cause and he was happy that finally we had conservative government.

He even thought that its better to spend on military by cutting back on health & education plans. I was simpily amazed.

Some of us do live in the stoneage! Our Civilised Nations cry all night for democracy, human rights and all that, but when someone elects a genuinely popular government then they starve the hell out of poor Palestinians!

I couldn't live in Norte de Amerika for its dollar worship society. The Spanish are still far more human in their approach to everything in life including global affairs. We did have an Aznar but obviously he has now moved to his natural country, the US of A.

He thought exactly like an American.

Some are moulded beyond any chance of sense, plus why worry? It's best for the world to boycott HangLow-American products. You can set them right only by hitting their pocket.

What would be on the menu? elephant ribs, zebra bergers and gorilla sandwitches Would you hire Fedex banana boats for shipment?

How about taking care of the people starving in Africa first?
