Is it really Terrorist, or actually the Iraqi people that Create terror?

We hear of insurgents, and Terrorist in Iraq. Is it the Average Iraqi that is creating the problems in Iraq?

Plus a lot of question about Saddams hanging, and asking if it will upset the Iraqi's, Do you think Iraqi's just look for a reason to scream Jihad Jihad, and run down the streets slapping each other, and throw bombs, rocks, so I ask you would something as simple as a comic strip make them go Jihad nuts?

    Terrorist do create terror, they just aren't creating very much of the terror and violence in Iraq. It is mostly Iraqis.

    That's actually 3 separate questions.

    Iraq is country just like ours. There are millions of people, with all kinds of different opinions. It's not a rat's nest of terrorist breeding maniacs, just as all muslims aren't terrorists. You don't hear about the average Iraqi, because he's not the one stirring up all the trouble. Just like you or me in the situation, he's keeping his head down and just trying to stay out of trouble.

    Jihad, in the meaning of 'holy war', is a very serious thing for muslims. The word has been thrown around a lot by some misguided people, and that's unfortunate. Muslims do not run around yelling "a jihad on you!" because they get cut off in traffic or whatever. In fact it's hardly ever used, and if it is, only in the gravest of cases.

    The country who was considered responsible for the cartoons did not get a jihad on them. Their products were boycotted, and there are rewards on the heads of the cartoonists. That is not Jihad.

    Many of the terrorists in Iraq are NOT Iraqis. Many are Iranian, but they are from other Arab countries as well trying to destabilize the new government. Those that are Iraqi are either Sunni or Shiite...i.e., two different sects of Islam fighting over old perceived wrongs done to each other. But the average Iraqi is neither...just typical people like you and me trying to survive amidst the insanity.

    As to the effect of Saddam's hanging. So far, most of the activity in the street has been celebration. The protests have been pretty much limited to Saddam's home town. No matter how much some Iraqis (note I said "some"...not all) may be upset about the Iraq war, very few miss having Saddam around. He will not be missed.

    It's not entirely Iraqis still fighting, MANY muslims from surrounding nations pour in seeking ANY chance to kill Americans.

    Lot's of the fighting is not between Iraqi and American, but Sunni and Shia. Sunni are losing power and fear the reprocussions of oppressing fellow muslims, while the Shia are delivering that retribution.

    The Sunni, Shia and Kurds don't want to be part of a nation together anyway.

    Yes, it would and it did. They also killed Van Goug:s brother a few years back for some dumb offense the poor man did. They rioted and burned part of France. I guess that was the cartoon thing. I tell you they have zilch sense of humor. They treat their women terribly. And the women have the Patty Hearst syndrome. This goes back to before the crusades. So if you are looking for a deeper meaning for their anger, read about Genghis Khan, And the other guy sort of like him. It tells you a lot about groups of peoples to read their history. Most westerners are real shakie on that part of the worlds history. I am speaking of Islams in general.

    People seem to forget that it wasn't the Iraqi's that felled the towers. That was Osama bin Laden! Bush went into Iraq because America gave Hussein all his weapons - crikey! they brought him into power in the first place - and knew he had weapons of mass destruction because they gave them to him. They searched high and low and all they found was Hussein in a hole! No weapons at all. Work it out! He got done for being a tyrant. Power corrupts - absolute power corrupts absolutely!

    it's actually Bush and his gang who created this situation in Iraq. Iraqis aren't terrorist, but what happened to them and their country by Bush made them scream Jihad
