    As far as I'm concerned, the conquering of a developing nation by a super power should be a piece of cake. The true finess (and some could argue the US is putting its best foot forward, unlike conquering nations in the past) is how the country's infrastructure, and society bounces back from a war. The responsibility of invading powers to nuture, and maintain the massive government structure to ensure a stable society. It seems the US is held to this moral level while developing country's are strangely exempt. (Don't get me wrong though, I was against the war from the beginning...)

    This employment advertisement on is one of many that have been popping up over the past year...and they are becoming very common as the weeks pass. The site for Candian Tech's is a real positive lift with all the bad news overseas....I mean come on...the wars are is time to rebuild, and at least attempt to build a peace everyone "wants."

    It's pretty clear to me that, regardless of what one thinks about our having invaded, the US is making an incredible effort to restore the services of a society in Iraq. We're spending billions of our own money, and putting US lives on the line: a lot of the guys being shot at are engineers and techs trying to get power, water, hospitals and basic services going. Just as we did in Japan and Europe after WW II, though there I don't think we were actively being attacked while we were rebuilding them.
