From the US perspective on how our relationship with Iraq will turn out; Mark Twain said it best:
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosper, he will not bite you; this is the principle difference between a man and a dog.
From the Arab perspective on how waging a jihad for Iraq turns out:
BERQAYEL, Lebanon - Ahmed Abdel Razzaq went to Iraq to fight the Americans and die a martyr. He ended up in a US prison camp after the Iraqis he went to defend captured and sold him for $100.
"I went to be a martyr in God's name," said Razzap, from poor north Lebanon, where Sunni Muslim militancy runs deep.
"I went to jihad (holy war) for the Iraqis but they are all traitors; the people, the army, the Kurds. They say Saddam was bad, but the Iraqis deserve 10 Saddams."
