- They had visions of the Iraqi people joyously welcoming them, like in France and in the concentration camps after they had defeated the German Nazis.
- They expected the Iraqis to adapt to the American instructions like the Japanese did after WWII.
As hideous and cruel many in the world saw Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the simple Iraqi wasn't complaining. And if they wanted a change, it wasn't to be via the American military.
Therefore I'm not at all surprised that the Iraqis being trained by the US soldiers are turning on their teachers, killing them.
This further proves that America is not to be trusted with Israel's security!
