The conflict between the United States and Iraq.
By all accounts, the reality of the American occupation and rebuilding of Iraq has diverted considerably from the idealistic vision that the occupiers held at the outset. Indeed, the American experience as an occupying force has been a disillusioning one. Through the course of their occupation the American strategists and forces alike have had to learn a lot of hard lessons about why their initial plans were wrong what they might need to do to amend it.
For the Iraqis, the experience has generally been one of considerable hardship and suffering. While there are similarities in the sense that both sides have experienced a heavy dose of confusion, frustration, and concern about the future course of Iraq, there are key differences as well. Foremost among these is the fact that, as the ones initiating the occupation, the Americans are in a position of responsibility while the Iraqis are much moreso in a position of rebellion and/or dependence.
The implications for the ongoing politics of the occupation and the future rebuilding of the Iraqi nation-state are that America will increasingly have to acknowledge that the course of occupation and rebuilding will depend on their ability to react and adjust to organically emerging Iraqi groupings and structures rather than imposing an external vision of what Iraq might look like.
The future strategic impact of the American endeavor in Iraq will depend largely on their ability to make this adjustment.
Looking first at the American experience in Iraq, there is no doubt that it has been one of disillusion and frustration. This is true for both the strategists and for the American troops on the ground. Colby’s Buzzell’s account of his experience as an American soldier exemplifies the outlook of the troops. While Buzzell generally retains a sense that he and his comrades are “fighting the good fight” in Iraq, he by no means has confidence that the dictators of policy are giving America the best chance to meet its goals.
Either way, his gives book gives a strong sense for the experience of the infantryman on the ground. He writes of the hardship of spending nights sleeping outside in the cold and rain. He gives a strong sense of the confusion battle, showing how difficult it is for the soldier to make snap judgments about who is the enemy and who is an average Iraqi citizen.
Perhaps most of all, Buzzell gives an inside look at how the real battles on the ground differ from the reports that Americans receive from news outlets like CNN. On the one hand, he confirms that innocent Iraqi citizens are being killed in numbers higher than American leader.....[read full text]
In one case, the house of a man named Ali al Hassan was mistakenly raided. While the British troops apologized for the mistake, they had already terrorized the family. Even worse, they had used sniffer dogs to search the house, thus violating strict Islamic customs and traditions about the presence of the dogs within the house. Later that day, six Royal Military Police were killed by attackers who were not part of the organized resistance but who were just reacting to the searching of Hassan’s house. This exemplifies how the Iraqi people have been subject to personal slights and humiliation that occupying coalition forces may not even be aware they are committing.
In continuing his analysis, Chehab points out that groups such as the Kurds, Sunnis and Shia have all experienced the occupation differently in some ways based on their unique histories. Certainly the Kurds were the most receptive to the American intervention, considering their history of suffering at the ha.....
