street228 Posted August 17, 2004 Report Share Posted August 17, 2004 quote: Personally, I believe that Bush has opened Pandora's box. As the agenda of democracies come and go according to who holds the power, I doubt that there will be sufficient political will & coherence in the future to pursue the stabilization of Irak & Afghanistan no matter what will be the cost and as long as it takes. I agree, with you on several things, but the one which caught my attention, is that of Pandora'a Box, and that stabilization of Iraq, and Afghanistan, will NEVER be achieved. I do NOT see it as a matter of "LACK OF WILL", though. I see it as "IMPOSSIBLE". In My opinion, it could ONLY have been achieved, IF, the AREA CULTURE,had been seized, IN ADVANCE, of MILITARY conquest. As it stands, EVEN those, apparantly happy under WESTERNISM, ARE (in fact) against it. They have no choice. Their CULTURE's FOUNDATION, will breed the defiance, REGARDLESS of our DESIRE, to RULE their way of thought!! or our MILITARY capability of holding them in subjugation. THIS is what will inevitably, KEEP, both AFGHANISTAN, and IRAQ, in turmoil. Military MIGHT, can NOT superimpose RATIONAL, upon such a CULTURE, nor can it KEEP such a culture, in check. Civil WAR, is almost guaranteed to ensue, and ANY unification,established, would make ALL(Outsiders) infedels, an ABSOLUTE ENEMY.
