Maybe that’s what they like?

A study published by CNN finds that more than 600,000 Iraqis have been killed since their country was liberated by U.S. forces in 2003, with only 31% of the fatalities attributed to U.S. and coalition forces, and those mostly happened in the early days of conflict.

In fact, what’s happening on the ground is (or seems to be) that ever since we got them rid of their brutal dictator, free Iraqis have been busy killing each other en masse. And despise our best efforts the killing only seems increase as it appears that only Saddam Hussein was somehow able contain it (actually we do know how).

Here is an unconventional thought: What if that’s just how they are, what if that is their “culture”? Maybe that’s why, unable to ‘express themselves’ in killing all those years under Saddam; they were sponsoring “Palestinian” terrorists in doing what they themselves were denied by the regime? And if it is so, now that Iraqis are free, do we have any moral right to impose our values, such as the value of human life on them?
